Needles and syringes

There will be a change to your usual bin collection day on week commencing Monday 30 May, due to the extra Bank Holiday. Our crews will be working between Monday to Thursday and all refuse collections that week will move a day forward. View your bin collection calendar.

We will respond to requests for the removal of needles and syringes within 2 hours. Please note, we can only collect disused needles from council-owned land. This includes roads and pavements. We cannot collect needles from private property, like houses and gardens.

Do not pick up discarded needles or syringes. If you can, cover the discarded needle with a container which needles cannot poke through, to stop anyone touching it.

You can use Report It to let us know about discarded needles or syringes.
