Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

Sharps Disposal Service

It is vital that all medical waste is discarded in a correct and safe manner. This will prevent any injury towards you, and also to other members of the community.

Needles and syringes are to be put into approved sharps containers only and not into general waste bins. You can collect free sharps containers from the Glenelg Shire Council Offices, or alternatively, you can use one of the sharps containers at the following locations:
