Communities across North America are being torn apart by the effects of fentanyl. Every day more of our youth become involved in the drug trade. It is taking over our streets and destroying our families.
Some communities are fighting back. Green roots movements to take back the streets see everyday citizens partnering with law enforcement, educators, community groups and service providers to clean up their streets and stop the spread of fentanyl and other drugs. These cooperative movements are not just raising awareness – they are active participants in making their cities and towns safer, healthier places to live.
The Role of the Remediation Team
Partnering with a remediation specialist who has experience handling fentanyl clean up means having someone to turn to who can safely and quickly restore homes affected by fentanyl trade. Shutting down a lab is only one step in restoring a community. Vacant homes, especially those that have already been associated with the drug trade, attract crime. By bringing in a remediation team these houses can be made livable again.
Remediation vs Replacement
Tearing down and replacing homes that have been used as drug labs may seem like the simplest solution. However, it will likely cost much more to remove and dispose of the home than to clean it. Demolition will require special handling and disposal of building materials and debris by a crew who have been trained in hazardous waste disposal and are familiar with fentanyl remediation. In most cases, the damage done by a lab can be undone without affecting the structure of the house. Remediation also means there will be less risk of aerosolizing any drugs or chemicals trapped inside the home. This makes remediation not only cheaper but safer and quicker than demolition and replacement.
