Health and safety - dumped needles and syringes
If you find a needle and/or syringe in the City please report it by contacting one of the following departments:
Parks & Open Spaces
Needles found in parks and gardens should be reported to Parks & Open Spaces.
Needles found anywhere else in Exeter should be reported to Cleansing Services.
What can you do?
In the first instance it is better to telephone one of the departments above, so that we can come and remove the needle if on public land. However, it really helps if you can store the needle out of the way so no-one will get hurt before we can remove it. A safe way to do this is to find a glass jar with lid and a bulldog clip.
This is now safe and ready for us to collect.
