The guideline Community Sharps Management has been developed to help NSW councils assess and manage risks and minimise harm associated with unsafe or inappropriate disposal of community sharps.

Councils, local health districts, government and some non-government organisations all have a role in providing an effective disposal infrastructure and in encouraging safe disposal. The guidelines encourage a collaborative approach between councils to effectively manage community sharps and create sustainable environments.
