    Q99: What should I do if I find a hypodermic needle?

    Please contact your local authority who will have the facilities required to dispose of the needles safely. If there are a large amount of needles appearing on a regular basis, please contact your local police force who will pass the information onto their drugs team.

    Do not pick any needles up yourself as you may be injured and at risk of infection.

    See the website in Related Information to find your local authority.
