Discarded Sharps

If you find a sharp (such as a needle or syringe) or other drug paraphernalia in a public place and are uncomfortable disposing of it yourself, please contact the City of North Bay’s Public Works Dispatch at 705-474-4340 to have our staff collect it. You will be asked to provide the object's location and your contact information. Alternatively, complete and submit the online form below. Service requests are addressed daily from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., with after-hours calls handled case-by-case or the next business day.

This service is for public property only, such as parks, trails, and sidewalks. For items on private property, it is the owner's responsibility to dispose of them safely.

If comfortable, you can also follow disposal procedures recommended by the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit: Safe Sharps Handling and Disposal.
