We will arrange for the removal and disposal of needles, syringes and other drug related items that are discarded in the environment.
As well as posing a risk to public safety, there are a number of hazards associated with handling these items.
We advise members of the public not to pick up needles, unless it poses an immediate danger to you or other residents.
You can report items such as syringes and needles online.
Please note that any needles, or syringes, etc. found on educational premises (e.g. schools, nurseries, etc.) during working hours should be reported immediately to the premises directly where staff on site are trained to deal with such items.
