Syringe Disposal Service


It is vital that all medical waste is discarded in a correct and safe manner. This will prevent any injury towards you, and also to other members of the community.

Needles and syringes are to be put into approved sharps containers only and not into general waste bins. You can use one of the sharps containers located within the Shire or alternatively, collect free sharps containers from Council Offices.

If you find a needle and decide to remove it yourself, please follow the steps in the Department of Health brochure very carefully.

If you require Council to safely dispose of a found needle please provide a precise location to 03 5593 7100.
