Sharp objects - needles
Use this form to report needles on public land.
If you find a syringe:
- DO NOT TOUCH IT
- DO NOT HIDE IT - but you can cover it so as to reduce possibility of injury to anyone else. Make sure the cover is obvious to anyone else who may see the needle.
- DO NOT SEPARATE THE NEEDLE AND THE SYRINGE
- DO NOT PUT IT IN A LITTER BIN, DRAIN OR FLUSH IT DOWN THE TOILET.
To report needles on school grounds, contact the school directly.
