When it comes to maintaining a safe and healthy environment, especially in public spaces, it’s crucial to address potential hazards promptly.

Needle clean ups are an essential service provided by Trauma Clean 24 Seven. We are dedicated to ensuring safety, peace of mind, and a cleaner environment for everyone.
The Hidden Danger of Discarded Needles
Discarded needles, often associated with drug use, can be found in parks, public restrooms, alleyways, and abandoned buildings. These sharp objects pose numerous hazards, such as:
- Injury Risk: Accidental needlestick injuries can result in exposure to blood-borne pathogens like HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. These injuries are not only painful but can lead to serious health complications.
- Public Health Concerns: The presence of needles in public areas increases the risk of injury to unsuspecting individuals. This includes children and pets. Moreover, it contributes to the spread of diseases, which is a public health concern.
- Environmental Impact: Discarded needles can also negatively impact the environment. They can be washed into storm drains, ending up in water bodies, and posing harm to aquatic life.
- Community Fear and Nuisance: The sight of discarded needles can cause fear and anxiety among residents and visitors, negatively affecting the community’s perception of safety and cleanliness.
