Report needles and drug-related litter

We’ll collect and safely dispose of needles and drug-related litter as soon as possible after we learn of it.

If you see something we should collect, do not touch it – put your health and safety first.

Report dangerous waste

Include as much detail as you can. For example:

  • How many needles are there?
  • Are the needles loose, or in a bag or box?
  • Is there an address or obvious landmark nearby?

We’ll respond within two hours to reports received between 6am and 3pm, or as soon as possible otherwise.
