Needle Hunters


The Needle Hunter Program is a component of the City of Ottawa’s corporate response to the issue of discarded needles/glass stems.


The City’s Discarded Needles/Glass Stems policy protects the public and the environment by promptly removing discarded needles and glass stems within the City, on public property. The corporate program includes the City’s 3-1-1 24 hour helpline, to arrange for the needles to be picked-up; needle drop boxes strategically located throughout the city at fire stations, pharmacies, hospitals, city buildings and community agencies to facilitate public access to safe disposal of syringes; and a needle hunter program.


In place since 1998, the Needle Hunter Program operates from April 1st to November 30th each year, 7 days a week. This work is contracted out to a social service agency through a tendering process. The Needle Hunters proactively search and collect discarded needles/glass stems and other drug using equipment as well as condoms in locations of particular need, each morning from 7 to 9 a.m.

Needle Hunters is updated monthly about locations of found needles in order to adjust clean-up routes.

Remember, if you find a needle on your property or in the community, call the City of Ottawa at 3-1-1 for disposal information and what to do with used needles.
