  • Needles

There are a number of hazards associated with handling these items and if discovered you should contact us to have them safely removed and disposed.

We advise members of the public not to pick up needles, unless it poses an immediate danger to you or other residents. Ideally, you should contact us and we will safely dispose of them.

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 should be trained to deal with such items.
