Needles, syringes and other drug related items are being increasingly discarded in the environment. There are a number of hazards associated with handling these items and if discovered within the South Bucks District you should contact us to have them safely removed and disposed.
Please note that any needles, or syringes, etc. found on educational premises (e.g. schools, nurseries, etc.) during working hours should be reported directly to the staff on site who are trained to deal with such items and they can arrange for safe collection and disposal.
We advise members of the public not to pick up needles. Ideally, you should contact us and we will safely dispose of them.
