Hazardous Drugs, Needles, and Residue
Drug use and abuse is a sad fact of life. We often see remnants of drug use in public settings, such as alleyways and children’s parks. The sight of used needles and other drug-related hazards can be disturbing, especially when our children could easily happen upon them. What’s even more disconcerting is that our homes vehicles, and even workplaces can become unsafe scenes due to drugs and drug paraphernalia. Bio Solutions Inc. is routinely called to situations where a person’s property has been compromised and where drugs, drug residue, and/or remnants have been left behind.
What We Do
Any item that has contained a controlled or illegal substance should always be handled with extreme care and never disposed of with general waste. Because remnants from drug use are not always visible, a professional company, like Bio Solutions Inc., should be contacted to make sure not only the drug paraphernalia is removed and properly disposed of, but any harmful residues are cleared away to keep you, your loved ones, and any other occupants safe.
When your property has been compromised by a drug user, the drug residue and improperly disposed-of drug paraphernalia, such as used needles, glass pipes, and baggies, can have lasting, adverse effects on the unsuspecting. Something as small as used hypodermic needle can easily penetrate someone’s skin, potentially compromising the victim’s health with unknown pathogens and drug residue. Broken crack pipes can cut skin and cause infections or allow drug residue to enter a person’s bloodstream. And even a seemingly harmless item, like a baggie, may contain enough drug residue to cause serious harm to children or pets.
