Transient Camp Cleanup

Clean Community Project cleaning a transient camp.

Life at the Clean Community Project (CCP) is about supporting a better, cleaner, happier, healthier, and safer life for all Americans.

Thousands of local businesses, public property and private residences are affected by the overwhelming effects of transient camps, which are increasing in numbers within the United States. The issue has grown even more so due to COVID19. These camps create a biological hazard for the community as well as endangering the health and wellbeing of the homeless. The clean-up of these sites often involves extensive work, including biological decontamination by trained professionals. It is a much more complex task than removing the trash and waste from homeless camps, whether you are faced with a large scale homeless encampment on several acres, or a small single camp behind a building.

Clean Community Project’s certified technicians handle the situation with safety, correct equipment, compassion, respect, empathy and the humanitarian aspects required. Even though it’s your private property, we acknowledge that they are people in  need and we are sensitive to their needs throughout the process. During the eviction process it has been common that we grab them a coffee to keep them warm or offer them snacks or foods or other essential items to help them out as much as possible. Clean Community Project’s experienced biohazard cleanup teams are available 24/7 to meet Washington’s homeless camp cleanup needs, call today at 425-709-9005 or email info@cleancommunity.us.

The Process In Summary:

Reporting Process

Report the homeless camp to Clean Community Project for consultation.

Job Property Walkthrough/Inspection

CCP will come out and inspect the area to determine feasibility, man hours and equipment required.  Conducted in pairs for efficiency and safety, you may choose to have your representative present. We compile photos and supply you an initial report, presentation and quotation.

Eviction Process

CCP will issue an eviction notice on your behalf.  CCP will give the camp 72 hours written notice and also offer some bags of supplies such as food and water. CCP deals with the process with complete empathy and respect and makes every effort to give back monetary and personal belongings to the owners.

Removal of Biohazards with PPE Equipment

Our needle extraction team arrives and removes all biological hazards/ drug paraphernalia to ensure the site is safe for the complete cleanup process.

Debris Cleanup

CCP will clean up all the trash, debris and remaining biological hazards. We then remove all debris remaining and transport to the appropriate facility.

Vegetation Maintenance

A
fter all the biological hazards/trash/debris has been removed, CCP can safely start the vegetation maintenance process. This can include brush cutting, tree/branch removal, pruning bushes and removal of unwanted vegetation, including the complete removal of trees to the stump level. 

Sign Posting

CCP will install signs on the gates, trees or fences to deter other encampments and to encourage the public to report any further camp activity.

Security Patrol

A few days after the job has been completed, we conduct a walk through to ensure there’s no further encampment startups, further activity or biological hazards. We also offer the ability to patrol the area periodically, based on your requirements, as some areas are more prone to transient camps than others.
