THIS week alone We Are Barnsley recieved two reports of syringes littered on streets in Cudworth and Wombwell.
Barnsley Council said:
Don't handle discarded needles unless absolutely necessary.
If you do need to move them urgently because they're a danger to children, make sure you wear disposable gloves and use tweezers to pick them up.
Place the discarded needles in a glass bottle or jar and keep them locked in a safe place until we can collect them for disposal.
If you find a syringe you can report it on: https://www.barnsley.gov.uk/services/bins-rubbish-and-recycling/discarded-needles-and-syringes/#
