Needles and syringes cannot not be placed in your waste, recycling or green waste bins.

Disposing of needles and syringes in these bins presents a safety hazard to our staff and the staff at the materials recovery facility and green waste processing facility.

Syringe containers are available for Boroondara residents from Council's offices, 8 Inglesby Road, Camberwell.

For more information on the safe disposal of syringes, including what to do if you receive a needle stick injury, visit the Department of Health website.
