The number of people that are homeless and in need of shelter is at all time high which has led to homeless encampments being erected all over our communities and public infrastructure. The homeless encampments range in size from very extensive large sites with numerous people and their belongings to a single individual taking up temporary residence in the back of a business, building or lightly traveled open space.
Bio SoCal has successfully and professionally completed homeless encampment cleanup for many private property owners and cities including Culver City, Malibu, Colton, Walnut as well as Orange Counties Santa Ana River Trail and Wilderness parks and multiple CalTrans properties.
Bio SoCal cannot remove homeless encampments from PUBLIC PROPERTY unless contracted by the city, county or state. If you DO NOT OWN the property in question, please call the city or county for help.
In the News: Recent Outbreak of Hepatitis A in California – The Homeless Are Most At Risk
The Los Angeles Times is reporting on California’s Deadly Outbreak of Hepatitis A that could last years. The recent outbreak of Hepatitis A in California is contributed to being spread from person to person mostly in the homeless communities due to the unsanitary conditions that are often found in homeless encampments. Efforts are being made to provide Hep A vaccines for the homeless, which will help safeguard those that receive it, but it doesn’t clean and disinfect the Hepatitis virus from the homeless encampments or other affected areas. If there is an encampment on your property, or even human feces, or urine on your property, you should have it removed, cleaned and disinfected immediately by professionals. Hepatitis can be deadly and proper protocols and cleaning should be followed when dealing with this virus.
What We Do:
- Consult with clients to advise procedures to mitigate legal risk & ensure safety prior to and during clean up.
- Remove and dispose of all debris including makeshift shelters.
- Safely remove & decontaminate all biohazards including feces, urine, vomit, blood and spoiled food.
- Remove and properly dispose of all sharps, illegal drugs, and paraphernalia.
- Infectious Diseases Decontamination including: Hepatitis A, HIV, MRSA, C.Diff, Tuberculosis, etc.
- Decontaminate and clean area to ensure health and safety.
Unfortunately homeless encampments are not only a nuisance and liability to those that own the property but the individual items and areas that make up the homeless encampment are often contaminated with biohazards and illegal drugs and paraphernalia. In most cases a homeless encampment will contain used and dirty hypodermic needles, feces, urine, vomit, spoiled food, blood, soiled clothing, illegal drugs, large amounts of trash, pests including rats and fleas, and makeshift structures for shelter.
Biohazards and used hypodermic needles pose a significant health and safety risk to others and thus requires proper cleanup by those trained to safely remove the contaminated items and properly dispose of the biohazards, sharps, and soiled items while also decontaminating the area.
It’s not worth exposing your employees or public works crew to infection or your company to lawsuits for improperly handling the cleanup. If you have a homeless encampment on your property or around your facility it should be professionally cleaned.
Bio SoCal can also help guide you through the process to rid the property of the temporary residents and secure it to enable professional and safe cleanup.
