Needlestick Pickup and Sharps Removal
Local authorities often encounter this type of material in bins, toilets, public areas such as parks, empty properties and any number of the alleyways and other hidden places inhabited by drug users. Blood borne viruses like HIV and Hepatitis are often carried by intravenous drug users, are highly infectious and contact with them can have very serious and sometimes life threatening consequences. Needlestick pickups must be controlled and carried out by a professional company like Complete Environmental Services.
Drug paraphernalia including hypodermic syringes or sharps, scalpels, razor blades and any number of other items that may cause laceration or puncture and as such potential exposure to these blood borne viruses poses a clear risk to the general public and safe removal and disposal of these is a potentially dangerous undertaking not to be taken lightly.
We have a team of highly trained individuals to ensure that sharps removal and needlestick pickups are done correctly in full accordance with current Health & Safety, government and COSHH procedures.
