Quick and Thorough Needle & Drug Paraphernalia Removal Services in Vancouver
Anyone could come across a discarded needle in a public place, and if they’re not properly disposed of, they could end up causing injury or permanent illness. When used needles are found they are almost always contaminated with blood. Often there is a small amount of blood left inside, or viruses that you may not be able to detect, including Hepatitis B and C, HIV, or other diseases.
It is extremely important that used needles be safely collected and disposed of!
Most people who use needles for medication have safe disposal containers. Using them for other reasons may cause them to be discarded anywhere, which can seriously injure the unsuspecting public who come into contact with them.

- Alleys and behind buildings
- City parks and playgrounds

When needles are safely disposed, no one gets hurt accidentally.
