Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in New Brunswick
In the maritime province of New Brunswick, you’ll find just about everything found in Canada: Mountains, prairies, fresh lakes, salty oceans, city, wilderness, and of course: French & English.
In fact, New Brunswick is Canada's only official bilingual province. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which protects basic rights that are essential to maintaining Canada’s democratic society, declares that English and French are the province’s official languages. With 32% of the population being French-speaking, New Brunswick has bilingual school systems, universities, media, and hospitals!
This francophone province, with the capital city of Fredericton, is best known for having the highest, wildest tides in the world. During a 12-hour tidal period, nearly 115 billion tons of water flow in and out of the bay! It’s no surprise scientists are working to develop technology to harness Moncton's Bay of Fundy's powerful tides. Using turbines on a floating platform, the goal is to eventually deliver nine megawatts of sustainable tidal energy to Nova Scotia's electricity grid.
New Brunswick's green mission
New Brunswick is a province that recognises the importance of sustainable initiatives that help protect our planet. In addition to leveraging the natural energy resource of the ocean, the Ministry of Environment and Local Government is dedicated to working with communities to establish and enforce sustainability plans and green initiatives to achieve environmental, social and economic goals.
New Brunswickers are passionate about clean air, water, and green spaces to recreate and protect the unique biodiversity of their home. Part of this vision includes a responsible approach to waste management. Poor waste management can lead to social, health, and economic problems for communities. Daniels Health is committed to harnessing technology to drive sustainable outcomes. Our reusable products and environmentally responsible treatment services are designed to increase segregation, reduce CO2 burden and minimise waste going to landfill, making us the ideal healthcare partner for New Brunswick medical facilities.
Biomedical Waste Disposal With Compliance
Daniels Health is dedicated to increasing safety and compliance through education. Providing sustainable options for segregation and methods to reduce the repeated handling of biohazardous waste, while minimising the volume of waste going into New Brunswick’s landfills.
Daniels provides a number of different treatment methods that can cater for all your biomedical and biohazardous waste needs including:
Autoclaving | Autoclaving is a common method in treating regulated biomedical waste and biohazardous waste, effective in killing bacteria and increasing infection control.
Chemical Disinfection | Depending on province specific guidelines, some biohazardous waste streams can be chemically disinfected.
Encapsulation | Needle stick injuries caused by sharps (needles, surgical blades or other instruments) continue to be one of the most prevalent risks for today’s healthcare workers. Daniels Sharpsmart solutions are clinically designed and tested to reduce these injuries.
Incineration | A cost-effective disposal method for biohazardous waste, incineration is the burning of biomedical waste produced by healthcare facilities including medical research labs and clinics, vets, physicians’ offices and hospitals.

New Brunswick Biomedical Waste Regulations
Having an in-depth understanding of common disposal methods for your biomedical and biohazardous waste based on CEPA and national guidelines is essential to maintaining safety and preventing injury to patients, staff and transportation workers. Under New Brunswick's health code, the generator of biomedical waste, (whether a surgery centre, hospital, physician’s office or long-term healthcare facility), is responsible for the appropriate segregation, packaging, labelling, storage, handling, transport, and treatment of biomedical waste. Through DOT training, waste segregation education, best-in-class product and service solutions, and our partnership approach, we walk with you to ensure that you're doing all of this correctly in a way that protects your staff, minimises burden on the environment, removes spill and contamination risks, and keeps costs managed. Our knowledge centre is chock-full of resources designed to help you navigate the waters of compliance and best practices.
