Whilst it’s safe to clean up the odd bird dropping, handling bird droppings of any quantity should be done with care due to the risk from disease. Large quantities should be handled by an experienced professional and disposed of safely. As well as being unsightly the acidic nature of bird droppings can even cause damage to the fabric of buildings which in turn, leads to higher cleaning and repair bills.
Measures can be taken to protect staff, contractors, the public and your facilities from the risks bird droppings bring. There are health and safety regulations that need to be followed when working with or near bird droppings; relevant regulations include:
As bird guano & debris is extremely hazardous it is essential that its removal is dealt with appropriately otherwise these particles can become airbourne or contaminate water courses.
We are always proud of our high standards and love our client feedback.
“The team arrived on site and had the full PPE requirements including safety harnesses and barriers. They carried out the work in a very professional and friendly way. They even regularly stopped their own work to allow for the constant flow of wagons to load and unload, they did not even moan about it!!
They kept the staff informed of every stage of the project and even pointed out issue with the building that we were not aware of.
The gantry walkway is now safe, useable and is so very clean now, excellent work!!
We are very happy with the work and we feel that NBC went above and beyond the requirements by carrying out extra bits of work that we did not expect, other companies could learn from this professional approach.
We have no complaints at all from the whole experience and have nothing but admiration for the team, thank you NBC for a job very well done!!”
“I would like to express my gratitude to NBC Environment and to Michael Hilton in particular.
Michael recently helped me to deliver a project at very short notice after being let down by others and that phase of works was critical in the project timeline.
Michael was very communicative throughout the planning and delivery of the project and his experience and guidance were invaluable to getting the right results.
With his help I was able to plan, raise an order and deliver the work within a day, which by any standards is a considerable achievement.
His administration was reactive and precise, and I would have no hesitation in engaging his services in the future.
Many thanks to Michael and his team.”
“We have worked with NBC for a number of years now and put our trust in them on a variety of contracts including pigeon and rodent issues. No job is ever to big or small and we know that whenoever we need NBC they are only a phone call away. Thank you again.”

“During the pandemic and with no one being in our stadium the pigeons have returned and we were experiencing not only high numbers flying around but also a lot of pigeon fouling inside our stadium. We knew the H&S risks surrounding this and called in the professionals again to assist. NBC attended site the next day and advised the best way to tackle the infestation and also the safe removal of the pigeon fouling. NBC were very professional and we are very happy with the results so far. Would highly recommend.”
“NBC Team have always provided a professional and efficient service which has brought confidence to my clients and so allowing me to bring more work to your organisation through the means of recommendation. ”
“Regarding the team who installed the netting, they were both polite, professional and efficient. I would have no problem recommending your company again to other clients or homeowners.”
“I would just like to thank you and your team on the professional manner that the site operation of cleaning the pigeon guano from the scaffold on the Brighton 3TS project. From the first site visit from yourself to the operation taking place it was done to the highest standards. Your men finished the works 1 day early which took strain off the NHS trust as we were working in live traffic. Much appreciated by all.”
“NBC completed the work safely and to a high standard, they listened to specific requirements and delivered a high quality job. We’re very pleased with the area and the result.”
