Hazardous waste such as syringes, needles, lancets and sharps pose a significant health risk and need to be disposed of safely.

Do not place any syringes, sharps and lancets in any general refuse sacks, recycling containers or rubbish bins - you may not only be risking your own health but that of the operatives that pick up the waste.

Using a yellow sharps box is the safest way to dispose of hypodermic needles, lancets and sharps. These are available on prescription from your local GP surgery or can be purchased directly from the pharmacy at a small cost. Once full, boxes must be returned sealed to either your local surgery or to one of the pharmacies in Gloucestershire participating in the take back scheme.
