Needle and syringe disposal

We provide sharps (syringe) containers to residents for medical purposes free of charge, to ensure the safe disposal of needles.


Residents are entitled to collect 1 x 4 litre syringe container at a time from our South Morang offices (25 Ferres Blvd, South Morang), and must show proof of residency (rates notice, or any form of ID that shows your name and address).

Businesses that need sharps containers - such as tattoo parlours and beauty salons - can purchase a sharps container for $25.50.

The Department of Health provides information about the state-wide Needle and Syringe Program (NSP) for other services available.
