Please dispose of 'sharps' responsibly

An appeal has been made for residents who inject themselves to only dispose of their needles in proper sharps containers.

Boston Borough Council provides a free facility for disposal of used needles. It does not have to provide this service in all situations, but does so in order that potentially-dangerous sharps are not disposed of inappropriately.

But it will only accept the needles in the proper sharps boxes supplied by the provider of the medicine (see picture).

Some loose needles have been presented to the council's customer services staff.
