Council officials have condemned the person who left a used syringe in a public bin near shops and a school in Newtown.

Powys County Council’s street cleaning team was called out after passers-by spotted the syringe in the waste bin near shops at Garth Owen yesterday evening.

The syringe was accessible to anyone passing and was in a bin opposite the town's high school.

“Our street cleansing team in Newtown had to respond rapidly on Saturday night to reports of a used syringe being left in public litter bin by the shops in Garth Owen,” said Recycle for Powys on their Facebook page today.

“Such irresponsible disposal of potentially hazardous waste materials is a clear risk to public health and safety.

“Our staff have now removed the offending items and disposed of them professionally.”
