Used needles/syringes

Reported via mobile anonymously at 14:20, Saturday 27 February 2021

Sent to Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Used dumped needles/syringes. At the back of the building where the fire exits are, there is a leaking over flow (its very easy to see). There are 4 or 5 fire exits, the problem area is the middle stairwell. In the puddle from the leaking over flow are many used needles. It can be accessed either from Wedgwood Road, or the park by following the line of the stream (see picture). Thankyou

  • This report is not the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council. This is a private stir well and needs to be secured by the building owner, also the syringe issue needs to be reported to Cherwell Dc as they have a street cleansing unit that have equipment o deal with this. It may also be worth reporting this to the Police first in case they need evidence of or can help prevent people using in the area. kind regards
