Needle and Sharps Uplift

C Hanlon provide needles/sharps uplift services in Glasgow and throughout Central Scotland.

Coming into contact with ’sharps’ (needles, hypodermic syringes and bladed items) is of great concern to the public. This concern is especially acute when sharps associated with illegal intravenous drug use are found in public places such as parks, car parks, children’s playgrounds, underpasses and courtyards.

Everyone knows about the hazards associated with handling needles and other drug paraphernalia but not everyone knows how to handle them properly. C Hanlon Environmental Services technicians are specially trained to handle such materials safely whether they are discarded in a public area, left lying around the home or in hidden areas. Unless you are trained in handling needles and other sharps, we strongly advise against it to prevent transmission of diseases such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV.

The Need for Immediate Action

Areas where hygiene is lacking or has been neglected pose major health and safety risks. We strongly recommend two things:

1. Do not ignore the problem.
2. Act immediately!


There are legal responsibilities for ensuring the public’s and employees’ health and safety...

Controlled Waste Legalities

Sharps are ‘controlled waste’ as defined in the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and need to be either destroyed by incineration or rendered safe by another licensed treatment method defined by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.

Owners and occupiers of land also have a legal responsibility to take reasonable care to ensure the safety of people using the land.
