What to do with a used syringe
DON’T panic, and DON’T touch it. NEVER try to re-cap a used needle, you risk a needle-stick injury. Put on gloves if possible.
Find a hard plastic container.
For example: Hard plastic bottles with a lid to seal it, such as shampoo, sun cream and bleach bottles. Do not use a squeezable bottle, glass bottle or a soft drink can, you could be fined.
