Free Medical Sharps Disposal Service

To enable residents to safely manage their medical sharps, Rockdale City Council has a free disposal program. There are ten pharmacies in the City of Rockdale that participate in this program.

They will accept medical waste such as:

  • Syringes and needles
  • Insulin pen needles
  • Blood glucose lancets

Please note: All pharmacies in NSW will accept unwanted/expired medication for safe disposal.

Ensure that all sharps are secured in an appropriate container before taking them to one of the participating pharmacies.

For example:

  • Sharps bin
  • Screw top (rigid) plastic container (for example, soft drink bottle)

Medical sharps must be taken to the following locations free of charge:
