Bio-hazardous waste is more common than you think. Sometimes you dispose of these items yourself improperly, not knowing that it is illegal and unsafe to do so. Bio-hazardous is when something is a risk to the human health or environment. Some examples of bio-hazardous are:

  • Animal waste
  • Human bodily fluids
  • Pathological waste
  • Sharps waste
  • Human blood and blood products

Without the proper clean-up of this waste, many things can happen. For example:

  • These items can be infectious, if not disposed of properly could lead to illness or death if come in contact with. The severity of the situation would be based on the items that were incorrectly disposed.
  • If sharps waste is not disposed of properly, the risk of someone being poked by these needles is high. This could result in diseases being transmitted.
  • Hazardous materials could pollute water if sent to landfills.
  • Materials can damage pipes and storage drains if improperly disposed down sinks or toilets.

Luckily, hazardous waste clean-up is one of the many services that SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties offers. If you need any assistance, call us today 360-533-8667.

Safety for New Years

Community Safety for New Years Try to be safe for New Years and take care of your loved one. Thank You for choosing SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties.

The New Year is among us and it's a time where some people get together with family and friends, light off fireworks, and have a few drinks. Some people like to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the New Year. SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties is her to help make sure that your New Year is a safe and fun one all at the same time. By fallowing these few little tips, it will help your New Years be just that much safer.

Safety Precautions

  • What people tend to forget when they are out drinking and having fun is the only cure for being drunk is time. If you need to get home and don't have time to wait, get a ride from a sober driver, call a cab, or an Uber. You don't want to risk getting into an accident and hurting yourself, or someone else.
  • Try to plan a ride in advance so when you know what your plan is once it's time to leave.
  • If you have leave your car overnight, make sure to lock it. You don't want to refer to your New Years of the time your car got broken into or stolen because you forgot to lock it.
  • If you are the one throwing the New Years Party plan for guests' safety give them a place to stay or an alternative ride home. Please try not to allow drinking and driving. One drink is One to many. 
  • Fireworks are sometimes a part of celebrating the New Year but keep in mind that they are dangerous, and they should only be lit and handled by someone who hasn't had any alcoholic beverages and are sober.
  • Try to have a zero Firearm policy because that is a way that somebody is going to get hurt. If people have alcoholic substances and are playing with a fire arm it's more than likely going to end up being a bad night.
  • If you have children give them a curfew for their New Year's Eve festivities. If they're old enough to drive, be sure they understand the dangers of driving on the holiday. Encourage them to stay in one location instead of hopping from party to party. The fewer place they travel to the less likely they are going to get into an accident.
  • Champagne people like to celebrate by opening a bottle of champagne, but corks can be dangerous if not popped off correctly. When popping the cork off of a bottle try to hold the bottle at a 45-degree angle, pointing it away from yourself and others to avoid poking an eye out.
