Sharps collections

It's the responsibility of residents to dispose of sharps safely. The following options are available: 

  • Take to your GP surgery
  • Hand to a pharmacist 
  • If you have a visiting nurse then hand to the nurse.

The NHS provides further information on safe disposal of sharps.

If you have found discarded syringes, needles or drug related items do not touch them. Please follow these instructions and report them to us.
