Report discarded syringes

Discarded drug litter such as used syringes and needles can cause serious health issues and must be reported immediately.

We will not attend to remove any drugs paraphernalia, such as syringes and needles, under any circumstances.

Do not

  • Attempt to clear away needles or syringes yourself


  • Make a note of the time, date and location you found the items for your report to your local council
  • Seek medical advice if you have received a needle stick injury

Your local council is responsible for clearing away syringes and needles from public areas.
