We collect sharps which include syringes, needles, finger pricking devices and lancets from domestic residents who treat themselves at home.
You can get sharps boxes on prescription from your GP or direct from your pharmacy. They are specially designed for you to dispose of sharp items such as needles, empty syringes, empty insulin cartridges and lancets.
Sharps are collected on Wednesdays. This collection must be pre-booked each time it is required. When your box is three quarters full, book your sharps collection online. Do not put your sharps box in with your rubbish.
