Request sharps collection

We will collect sharps boxes (used needles) from residents who are self-medicating for conditions such as diabetes.

We do not collect clinical waste or sharps from commercial and business addresses.

Sharps box collections can be booked by residents who are using sharps to self-medicate as prescribed by their doctor or healthcare practitioner.

Other types of clinical waste can only be booked at the request of health trusts, health centres, doctors or district nurses. If you are a resident wishing to request a clinical waste collection please contact your health practitioner.

Sharps boxes are collected on a different schedule to that of your refuse and recycling. When arranging a collection you will be advised separately where to leave the sharps boxes for collection and the date of your collection.

If you have sharps boxes with different coloured lids, you will need to complete a separate request for each coloured lid.
