If you are concerned about the imminent danger to people and want to remove this by collecting the needles or syringes, then you must take precautions:

  • Do not handle with your bare hands
  • Sweep them up with a dustpan and brush or something similar
  • Place them in a coffee jar or tin, or strong plastic box with lid. Keep them in a safe place out of children's reach to await collection
