You should report any sightings of sharps immediately. They have the potential to cause significant harm. Professionals with the right experience can quickly dispose of them in the correct manner. Needles, syringes and other sharps should not be put into the regular waste or public litter bins. There is a high risk of infection with these items and they need to be safely taken away from any public environment.

Dedicated sharps bins or containers are the best solution for disposing of sharps. They are self-contained and provide a sealed storage box to keep the sharps away from other waste.
