Your local council has a legal obligation to collect sharps on request.It doesn't matter what the source of those needles is, even if you were a druggy, it shouldn't matter, you ask for a sharps box and they provide it and collect it - that's the law, due to the danger such things represent.|
If this isn't your experience, then you've not spoken to the right people, and you need to complain, A LOT. Seriously, this is a big problem...
Having said that, new unused needles are a good source of of high carbon tube in small sizes. But used needles are too much risk. Dispose of them properly...

John Paton 1,
That sounds an interesting kind of torch. Is it something that an average bloke can have in his shed or is it rather specialised?

Correct what Martin has said about the council collecting these needles, I have telephoned them but they didn't reply back, I suppose they are working from home. Reading these posts I would rather keep hold of them, I can inject my moving parts with oil.
