Sharps Disposal Cumbria & Borders
Why use Border Extreme Cleaning?
A lot of people will try to pick up needles and just throw them away in their household waste. Not only are you endangering yourself but also the unfortunate person who may come across it after you have disposed of it. All sharps must be collected and stored in a sharps safe box. A single prick from a discarded needle can lead to infections such as HIV, Hep B, Hep C plus any kind of blood borne pathogens.
On average it is thought that around 30% of Hepatitis B virus infections are caused by discarded syringes.
Be aware that not all needles will be visible to the naked eye. Users will have their own secret hiding places. In some cases, they will leave booby traps which they will deliberately leave in place to cause harm. If you come across a needle there is every chance, there will be more nearby.
