If you come across any discarded syringes or needles do not touch them or pick them up.

Cover the syringe or needle up if you can and make sure children and pets are kept away.

You should report discarded syringes or needles as soon as possible.

We can remove syringes from public land. However we are not responsible for removing them from inside private property.
