A new Community Sharps website

Welcome to our redesigned website! Here you’ll find information and resources about managing and disposing of community sharps. The Community Sharps Management Guidelines for NSW Councils provide information, options and guidance on developing a strategic response to the management and disposal of community sharps that have been inappropriately disposed of.

We’ve created an online grant application form for NSW councils.

Our Resources section contains current legislation and policies relating to the management of sharps and workplace health and safety, examples of a range of strategies implemented by councils, and useful contacts.

If you would like to receive updates and stay informed about the program, our successes and about all aspects of community sharps, please subscribe to our updates.

We will be continually improving this website and are keen to receive your feedback on what you like, what you’d like more of, or what needs to change to make it better.

We’re really excited about the revitalisation of the Community Sharps Management Program and hope you enjoy exploring the website.
