Parents/Guardians should contact the Needle Hotline at 604.657.6561 to report a discarded needle on school property or Sunnyside Park, and it should be picked up in about an hour.
More details on the Hotline can be found here:
The VanConnect App can also be used (click on Garbage and Litter, then Abandoned Garbage, then Discarded Needle) to report a discarded needle. The City will share this information with the Needle Hotline. However, this option may take more time before the needle is picked up.
Condoms can be carefully placed in a garbage bin by an adult.
Alternatively, condoms can be reported on VanConnect as abandoned garbage (click on Garbage and Litter, then Abandoned Garbage, then Garbage/Miscellaneous Junk) on City Property such as Sunnyside Park. If found on the school playgrounds over the summer break, the Vancouver School Board (VSB) should be contacted.
