Online Syringes / SHARPS Reporting Form
If you find a syringe:
- DO NOT TOUCH IT
- DO NOT HIDE IT - but you can cover it so as to reduce possibility of injury to anyone else. Make sure the cover is obvious to anyone else who may see the needle.
- DO NOT SEPARATE THE NEEDLE AND THE SYRINGE
- DO NOT PUT IT IN A LITTER BIN, DRAIN OR FLUSH IT DOWN THE TOILET.
This form is for reporting Syringe / SHARPS issues only. If you would rather make an enquiry or suggestion, please do so using the website feedback form.
We will remove sharp objects/needles on Council land (including Housing land, Children's Play Areas and Car Parks) within 2 hours.
We will contact owners of private open land to request that sharps are removed and, if they are not, take enforcement action against the land owner where possible.
Where we have been unable to remove the sharps or trace the owner of the land , we will inform you of what is happening within 5 working days
