Triton’s Top Tips on Preventing Needle Litter

  1. Install Secure Sharps Disposal Containers: Place clearly labelled, tamper-proof sharps disposal containers in areas where needle use is more likely. Ensure these containers are easily accessible and regularly maintained.
  2. Conduct Regular Clean-Ups: Employ Professionals to regularly inspect the premises, especially hidden or less-frequented areas, for discarded needles. Swift removal can prevent accumulation and reduce risks.
  3. Educate Staff and Regular Users: Educate your staff and the regular users of your premises about the dangers of needle litter and the importance of proper disposal. Awareness can lead to better compliance and vigilance.
  4. Engage with Local Health Services: Collaborate with local health services or needle exchange programs to address the root cause of needle litter in the area. They can provide insights, resources, and support for prevention strategies.
  5. Implement Signage: Post signs that indicate the dangers of improperly discarded needles and the locations of sharps disposal containers. Awareness and information can be powerful deterrents.
  6. Provide Training on Safe Handling: Train staff in the safe handling and disposal of needles. Knowing what to do if they encounter needle litter can prevent injuries and promote prompt action.
  7. Increase Surveillance: Consider increasing surveillance in areas prone to needle litter. Visible security measures can deter illegal activities and encourage proper disposal practices.
  8. Collaborate with Law Enforcement: Work with local law enforcement to address issues related to drug use on or near your premises. Their presence and intervention can be a significant deterrent.
  9. Create a Reporting System: Establish a system where staff and visitors can report discarded needles safely and anonymously. This ensures that needle litter is dealt with promptly.
  10. Promote a Safe Environment: Promote a safe and inclusive environment on your premises. Addressing broader safety and health concerns can indirectly reduce the incidents of needle litter.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are needles and sharps?

Needles and Sharps is the term used for any medical instrument or device that has a point or edge sharp enough to cut or pierce the skin. These can include:
• Syringes • Hypodermic needles • Glass phials • Scalpels • Razors and Razor Blades • Knives • Scalpels • Broken Glass • Epinephrine/Autoinjector pens

What is a needle sweep?

A needle sweep is a cleaning process conducted by trained professionals to safely locate and remove discarded needles and sharps from public and private spaces. This service is crucial in areas commonly used by drug users, presenting a risk of encountering used needles, which can pose a health hazard due to potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The sweep ensures that areas are thoroughly inspected and cleared of any sharps, making them safe for public use and occupancy.

What are the dangers caused by needles and sharps?

Needles and sharps are often used for drug administration and can become contaminated with bloodborne pathogens. If someone is accidentally punctured by a used needle, there is a risk of transmitting infections such as hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

What areas require needle sweeps?

Needle sweeps are typically required in areas where there is a higher likelihood of needle disposal or loss. These areas include but are not limited to:
• Public parks and playgrounds
• Vacant properties and abandoned buildings
• Public restrooms
• Car parks and underpasses
• Areas known for illegal drug use
• Healthcare facilities and surrounding areas
• Housing units and communal living spaces prior to new occupancy
Essentially, any location that might be considered at risk for containing discarded needles can benefit from a professional needle sweep.

How do you dispose of needles?

Needles and sharps must never be thrown into general waste bins due to the risk of injury and the potential spread of infections. Instead, they should be disposed of in regulated, puncture-resistant, leak-proof, and correctly labelled sharps disposal containers. These containers are designed to safely contain needles, blades, and other sharp objects, minimising the risk of injury.
