If you administer medicines yourself you are responsible for getting rid of needles, syringes and other medical waste.
Contact your local council about their clinical waste collections.
Never put needles or syringes with your household rubbish or recycling.
Needles used for a non-medical purpose
To get rid of needles that have been used for a non-medical purpose, visit the KDAAT website.
Nursing homes and medical establishments
You should arrange for this type of collection through your normal waste collection contractor.
