Needle, Syringe & Sharps Removal
It is extremely important that needles, syringes and other sharp objects are reported immediately and removed and disposed of by a trained professional safely. It cannot be emphasised enough that the disposal of these in general waste is extremely dangerous.
All sharps waste presents a bio hazard and can potentially carry harmful disease such as HIV and Hepatitis and other infections to be passed onto others. Sharps such as needles, syringes, and blades can be found anywhere and are often found in low level gutters, roofs, hidden in the cracks of walls, bins, toilets and other public areas that are used by illegal drug users.
