The Community Sharps Management Guidelines for NSW Councils (PDF, 400kB) was developed in 2004, with the endorsement of the then, Local Government and Shires Association of NSW. The Guidelines provide information, options and guidance for councils on developing a strategic response to the management and disposal of community sharps that have been inappropriately disposed of.

They are currently under review. Please also visit the Resources page for current information on relevant policies and legislation, promotional materials for councils and case studies.
