OFRS has solidified its position as one of the industry leaders in comprehensive homeless encampment cleanup solutions, biohazard remediation, and site restoration. The many complications that municipalities and the adjacent communities are facing with illegal homeless encampment dwellings is becoming more and more apparent. These sites not only pose a potential health hazard to the surrounding community but can become a liability for the property owner. OFRS is familiar with the necessary mitigation processes involved and handles each project with the utmost care and professionalism, while providing the client safe, efficient, and cost-effective removal of these encampments.
Along with the removal process, OFRS will provide proper handling, waste profiling, site decontamination, and disposal of all generated wastes. OFRS is a licensed Trauma Scene Waste Management Practitioner governed by the California Department of Public Health. Furthermore, all employees are properly trained, certified, medically surveilled, and outfitted with the appropriate PPE that is necessary to handle human waste and drug paraphernalia.
In addition to the physical mitigation, cleanup, and remediation services, OFRS also provides a parallel social services program called KleenSweep™. Rather than just clean up and remove homeless encampments and displace the residents, KleenSweep™ is a compassionate social venture that further assists municipalities with social rehabilitative services in an effort to provide able-bodied and willing homeless people with the opportunity to productively reenter society. So long as displaced homeless encampment residents prove they can stay clean and sober and can pass other standard work-related requirements, OFRS wants to help solve the homeless problem by giving them the opportunity to rejoin working society. This venture represents one of the many ways OFRS gives back to the communities in which we work. Please inquire for more details.
