Needle Sweeps

Grime Scene Queens provide a professional needle sweep service for syringes, needle sticks, scalpels, razor blades and any other kinds of biohazard associated with self medicating patients and illegal drug users. 

Local authorities and landlords 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. We are only too aware that 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. 

Drug paraphernalia including hypodermic syringes, 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. With this in mind, we have a team of highly trained individuals to ensure this is done correctly in full accordance with current Health & Safety, government and COSHH procedures. 

Our services are suitable for housing associations, letting agents, drug rehabilitation centres, landlords, the police and prison services, colleges and universities among others and you can be assured that our professionally trained operatives have all the necessary knowledge in the safe removal & disposal of syringes, needlesticks and other drug paraphernalia.
