Syringe Disposal Service


A confidential and free needle disposal service is available through our Environmental Health Department.  

A free sharps container can be collected from the Beaufort Shire Office or Avoca Information Centre.

If you find a needle you can call the Victorian Syringe Disposal Helpline on 1800 552 355.  

If you require Council to safely dispose of a found needle please provide a precise location to (03) 5349 1100.

Please follow the steps in the Department of Health's publication Safe retrieval & disposal of needles and syringes(PDF, 20KB)  very carefully if you decide to remove it yourself.
