So my local authority uses a private contractor PHS Allclear to collect sharp bins from my doorstep and drop off like for like replacements at the same time, all on a pre appointed basis; This week 7 litres of sharps were not collected, the customer service phoneline is referring to email only and their website offers no specific instruction. They are key workers, but suffering under the same impacts as the rest of us, quite understandable. Meanwhile, other than going back to the old school way of collecting them in an empty plastic bottle, [Yes there really was a time back in the 80s when we were advised to do this and then screw lid on and put it in the bin!!!] ...what else should we do in the short term?!
