Needle disposal near you
You can return your used sharps to KRC. There is a 24-hour disposal bin outside the building. We also collect sharps inside the KRC and Clinic 180. If you live outside inner Sydney, most Needle and Syringe Programs collect used sharps and will supply you with safe disposal bins.
For more information you can check out the Safe Sharps website. On this website you can find a convenient disposal site, and also upload information about sites that are not yet listed. There are currently 1600 safe sharps locations listed and this will only grow as councils, pharmacies, Needle and Syringe Program providers and users share new information.
