Needles and sharps

Discarded needles on private property

Property owners are responsible for the disposal of discarded needles found on private property. 

You are advised to use rubber gloves or gardening gloves to pick up and then place the needles into a plastic screw top container, e.g. plastic milk or drinks bottle (not glass containers as these could shatter).

The container can then be discarded in general rubbish.
