We all like a takeaway… and scavenging gulls are no exception. Waste and landfill sites represent one thing to a gull – a ready source of takeaway food.

However, landfills also contain unpleasant items that can harbour the risk of disease. Consequently, birds (particularly gulls) feeding on the sites can pose potential health risks to our cities and towns, with gulls being implicated in the spread of salmonella and e-coli.

We have a long and successful track record working in waste management with customers such as Biffa and Veolia Environmental Services. Our extensive experience in bird and pest control is unrivalled as we understand the problems you face with seagulls, rats and other problem pests.

We always complete a free and comprehensive risk assessment to assess the hazards to the local environment and the health and safety of staff and visitors. A cost effective programme of control will be recommended to ensure that your site/s have the appropriate pest control measures to comply with environmental health legislation.

We also undertake comprehensive risk assessments and reporting for each site visit to avoid health & safety infringements, which left undetected or unmanaged, could result in potential costly litigation and in severe instances, closure of your premises or interruption to daily business activities.

Talk to your local NBC branch manager to arrange your free pest risk assessment and pest prevention plan, or for advice how we deliver best practice processes for ensuring compliance.
