Sharps box

Sharps box

A 'sharps box' is for used and un-used syringes and needles and should be provided by your doctor or nurse. Please be aware we do not supply replacement sharps boxes. You can get these from your GP or nurse.

Make sure

  • all sharps are contained within the box
  • the lid is securely closed
  • the sharps box is visible on collection day. You can provide further details when you request a collection

Do not

  • leave sharps out in anything other than a 'sharps box'
  • leave out extra sharps for collection that are not appropriately contained

Once your sharps box is full or you no longer need a sharps box you can request a collection by completing the online form below
