If you find a needle or pipe
If you're comfortable disposing of a needle yourself, follow these steps:
- Find a glass jar or other container that the needle can't poke through.
- Wearing rubber or puncture-proof gloves, pick up the needle by the end that is not pointed. Keep the pointy end away from you.
- Don't put the cap back on. That is one way to risk getting injured.
- Put the needle, and the needle cap, if you have it, it in the container.
- Wash your hands with soap and water.
- Store the container with needle(s) in a safe space, away from children.
- Take the container to a needle drop box, to Battle River Treaty 6 Health or Sexual Health Harm Reduction Offices, or call City Hall to arrange for assistance if you are unable to pick them up yourself.
If you poke yourself with a used or discarded needle:
- Gently squeeze the wound to encourage it to bleed.
- Immediately wash the wound and surrounding area with soap & water.
- Immediately go to the Hospital's Emergency Department.
If you have accessibility or mobility challenges and cannot pick up needles, or if you locate more than 10 needles in one place, please call City Hall at 306-445-1700 to request assistance from the CSOs or the Fire Department.
