Q99: What should I do if I find a hypodermic needle?

Contact the local authority who will have the equipment required to dispose of the needles safely. If there are a large amount of needles appearing on a regular basis then after contacting the local authority, please contact the police.

Do not pick the needle up yourself as you may injure yourself and could be in danger of being infected.
