Needles & syringes

Needles, syringes and other drug related items are being increasingly discarded in the environment we live in.

There are many hazards associated with handling these items and so the council has a specialist removal service run by people who are trained to safely remove and dispose of them.

If you discover any needles or syringes, you should contact the council to have them safely removed and disposed of by our specialist team.
