Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Alberta

The province of Alberta is home to some of the most scenic natural wonders in Canada, like Banff National Park and Lake Louise. Slightly larger in size than France, Alberta only has 4 million residents. That’s because most of the western land is covered in rivers, lakes, hot springs, and of course the Rocky Mountains. Preserving this area are 5 national parks and 76 provincial parks! 

If you’re a nature lover, chances are you have a visit to Bannf National Park at the top of your bucket list. Established in 1885, Banff is Canada’s oldest national park. Situated within the Rocky Mountains, this park encompasses 6,641 square kilometres of mountainous terrain, glaciers, dense coniferous forest, and of course the famous Lake Moraine. Fed by the glaciers, the lake only starts to thaw in early summertime. Once thawed, Lake Moraine turns a stunning shade of turquoise; the colour is so beautiful you would think it was photoshopped. Lake Moraine is one of the most photographed sites in the world; you may even recognise it as one of the main preloaded desktop images on your computer.

Alberta is a province that truly cares to protect its lush environment. Calgary, for instance, is the largest city in Alberta and has been ranked one of the best places to live for 8 years running. The government invested over $31 million dollars in composting and recycling alone to make Calgary a clean city. By 2020, it is expected that more than 80% of the city’s garbage will be diverted away from landfills. The province capital, Edmonton, recently launched a 30-year environmental plan to support local resilience and sustainability known as "The Way We Green".

At Daniels Health, we place a high priority on sustainable practices. In fact, one of our core iniatives is to divert the volume of healthcare waste from landfills. As a leader in the healthcare industry, our mission is to minimise carbon footprint burden and support our customers and healthcare partners drive impactful sustainability initiatives.


Alberta's flourishing Healthcare Sector 

In addition to sustainable practices, Alberta is praised for having the second most integrated health systems in the world, next to the Netherlands. The Primary Health Care Integration Network combines acute care, continuing care, home care, public health, addictions and mental health, emergency medical services and cancer care under a single patient-focused authority. These varying healthcare facilities naturally produce medical and biohazardous waste, which is where Daniels Health comes into the picture. Daniels Health has been providing biomedial waste management and sharps disposal expertise to the Alberta healthcare sector for over 10 years.




A Holistic Approach to Biomedical Waste Management

At Daniels Health, we’ve established ourselves as a dynamic healthcare waste management solution provider to the healthcare professionals of Alberta. Our clients in Alberta trust us to ensure they comply with the provinces' waste management laws.

Unlike other waste management service providers, we protect the process from cradle (generation) to grave (disposal) and assume full responsibility for the security of your waste. As the waste generator is responsible for the waste they produce UNTIL such time as it is disposed of, it is critical to have a healthcare waste partner that holds high risk insurance and assumes full responsibility of pharmaceutical + other healthcare waste pickup, transport, treatment and disposal. To ensure the risk to our customers is minimised, it is our drivers, our trucks and our processing facilities that provide full services - no third parties involved! This combined with our years of experience and innovative approach means that your waste is safe with us. 

We are different, because we:

  • Leverage innovation in safety technology, robotic washing, storage and movement solutions, and solutions that minimise cross-contamination. 
  • Partner with healthcare facilities to reduce waste volumes and, in doing so, reduce overall costs to the waste generator! 
  • We're upfront with our pricing, our contract terms and our service expectations. From the start of the relationship, we ensure we're both on the same page. 
  • Provide clinically designed sharps, biomedical and pharmaceutical containers proven to dramatically reduce infection, security and safety risks. 
  • Have delivered 30+ years of safer sharps disposal through the invention of the Daniels Sharpsmart sharps container which has proved an 87% reduction in needlestick injuries. 
  • Manage your waste locally - no brokerage, no third parties, no interstate treatment complexities 
  • Mitigate risk at every opportunity, to ensure our clients remain compliant under complex province regulations
