Sharps and syringes

Please be aware that sharps and sharps container disposal is not permitted in general waste or recycling bins.

Medical sharps containers are not for sale at our offices. Please contact your local pharmacy or supplier of medication for further advice/information about obtaining/purchasing sharps containers.
