Needles & syringes

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

There are a number of hazards associated with handling these items and therefore the council has a specialist removal service run by people who are trained to safely remove and dispose of drug related items.

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

For further information or if you need to use the council’s removal service, please fill in a report waste or street cleaning form.
