If you find needles or syringes on private land, call the Needle Exchange on (02) 4275 1529.

This service is based at Port Kembla Hospital and operates between 8 am and 5.30 pm Monday to Friday. They can quickly arrange collection by a qualified person in most cases during these hours.

If you feel ok about handling the discarded needle or syringe safely, follow these steps:

  • Place the needle in a strong puncture-proof container with a lid. Don't use a glass container as it can break.
  • Carry the container to the needle, place the needle inside the container and ensure the lid is on tightly.
  • Call the Needle Exchange to arrange for pick up or take to a drop off location.

You can also find details of local pharmacies that accept syringes for disposal on The Safe Sharps website.
