The removal of potentially contaminated needles and other sharp objects that pose the risk of infection needs to be handled by trained professionals. We work safely and methodically, using the appropriate needle sweep personal protection equipment (PPE) and clothing.
The discovery of needles, syringes and other potentially infectious sharps on your property or business premises should be reported immediately. Our trained team can then ensure the risk is removed from the site, thus eliminating the risk. Please be aware that it is highly dangerous to dispose of needles, syringes and other sharps in household waste and public litter bins as this can pose a threat to other people and the surrounding wildlife.
Sharps (such as needles, syringes, blades, and other hypodermics) are commonly found in waster bins, public toilets, vacant premises, and other areas used as squats by drug users. The hypodermic purpose of such implements means they can carry infectious blood borne pathogens, such as Hepatitis B and HIV. The improper handling of sharps while cleaning them away can lead to the accidental exposure and infection of those handling the contaminated items. It is for this reason that you should not try to dispose of sharps yourself; instead, the removal of these high-risk items should be left to our properly trained and equipped team of professionals.
