What to do if you discover discarded sharps
If you discover discarded sharps be careful not to touch them, and don't allow anyone else to. Please don't kick them into the gutter or drain, and don't throw them away with normal rubbish. Any of these things could pose a serious danger to other people or wildlife.
Wearing thick gloves and, if possible, using tongs or tweezers, carefully place the item sharp end first into a metal can or strong plastic bottle. Make sure you wash your hands afterwards and store the container in a safe place.
