Needles and syringes should be handled and disposed of in a safe manner.

What is a needle sweeping service?

Needle sweeping is a disposal or cleaning service of sharps, needles and syringes. Usually, these needles and syringes are discarded in public spaces after the illegal use of drugs. Due to the obvious risk of developing blood-borne infections such as HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C these sharp objects should be disposed-off properly under the guidance of The Environmental Protection (Waste Management) Regulation.

Needle sweeping service is offered where used needles syringes and sharps are found. EnviroForce disposes of needles, syringes and sharps in a puncture-resistant, rigid-walled, sealed container. Objects or equipment having sharp points, protuberances, or cutting edges capable of cutting or penetrating the skin are referred to as 'sharps'.
