Professional Homeless Encampment Cleanup Services in South Carolina

The homeless population is rising at a tremendous rate. We encounter more and more homeless encampments as time goes by. You may assume this is not a common problem, but to put it in perspective, over half a million Americans go homeless every night in the United States. About 35% of these people (just under 200,000) are sleeping unsheltered in places not intended for human habitation. This number is rising yearly.


These homeless encampments present many issues to the general public. With no electricity or running water, there are a variety of biohazards present. These range from human and animal waste, diseases, and possibly drug and drug paraphernalia. Steri-Clean has encountered many biohazard risks while conducting homeless encampment cleanup. Imagine a life without electricity, running water, or plumbing. The biohazard possibilities are endless.


Not only do these encampments pose a danger to the public, they put a liability on whoever owns the property. Steri-Clean South Carolina offers homeless encampment cleanup to remove trash, biohazards, and drug related paraphernalia. Our homeless encampment cleanup is an all-inclusive service that will work with governments and business owners every step of the way to restore your property. 

Trash and Biohazard Clean Up


The most noticeable part to a homeless encampment is the trash. Without trash service, there is nowhere for the waste to go. While this is an eye-sore, what’s just as important is what isn’t visible at the first look.


There are several potential biohazards at these camps. There may be exposure to human waste, blood, bodily fluids, drugs, needles, and syringes. Steri-Clean technicians are trained in biohazard cleanup and can point out hazards that your normal waste removal service may not notice. Safety is our number one goal.


Human waste and bodily fluid exposure can be extremely dangerous to you as the property owner, the uninvited tenants, or the general public. 


Rodents are often present as the feed on the trash left behind. This can cause an infestation issue, regardless of being outside. Once these animals realize this is their food source, they will stay until it’s not.


Syringes and drug paraphernalia are usually not biodegradable. These can pose an enormous issue. To the naked eye, these are usually missed. Steri-Clean is familiar with these risks and keeps an eye out to ensure every biohazardous possibility is removed.


Typical homeless encampment cleanups are in parks, underpasses, abandoned buildings, and in wooded areas. No building or area size is too small or large for us to handle. We can accommodate to your needs, whether we need special motorized equipment to travel through 20+ acres of wetlands, or to clear out your 2,000 sq. ft. industrial building. We will remove all waste and biohazard to ensure your location is brought back to its original state. 


Steri-Clean South Carolina always utilizes the human element in every homeless encampment cleanup. We realize these are human beings with belongings, and they see this as their home, legal or not. We do our best to communicate with all parties and post signs to acknowledge when we will be cleaning. We don’t want to cause any further trauma to these individuals. We understand there are many circumstances that led to them being in this predicament, and can offer resources to get them back on their feet as well.


Steri-Clean is here for you 24/7 for your homeless encampment cleanup needs. Whether you are a government employee, park ranger, or a business owner we are here to help. Our goal is to complete these cleanups safely and humanely.
