City of Canada Bay Council developed a Community Sharps Policy to encourage the safe management of needles, syringes and lancets by minimising the number of these materials entering the general waste stream through the kerbside collection.

The proposed policy includes a streamlined application process for existing and new pharmacies to join the program and includes terms and conditions for the service, which will continue to be funded by the domestic waste charge and is intended for domestic use only. To ensure the program is financially sustainable, Council has developed the Community Sharps Policy to provide a more effective partnership between the City of Canada Bay and local pharmacies through the Community Sharps Program.
