Oncology Centres 

Safe, cost-effective, cytotoxic waste solutions for oncology settings  


With safety at the forefront of its solutions, more Canadian oncology centres and cancer hospitals are choosing Daniels for customer-focused and cost-effective cytotoxic waste services. 

 


 

Given the potentially hazardous nature of cytotoxic and trace chemotherapy waste, stringent regulations govern its collection, transport and disposal. Leading the way in compliance, the Daniels reusable Chemosmart solution is the first cytotoxic waste container system in Canada to eliminate the need for plastic bags and cardboard boxes. With various mounting systems designed to minimise odour expulsion and enable point-of-use accessibility at bedside or in an oncology infusion environment, the Daniels Chemosmart containers ensure the protection of staff and patients in the safe disposal of all chemotherapy sharps and drug-contaminated items. This efficiency, and the elimination of disposable containers, dramatically reduces overall cost, landfill burden and environmental impact.
 

With 30+ years experience in healthcare, Daniels has the solutions, licensing and compliance expertise to protect the safety risk exposure and regulatory responsibilities of healthcare facilities in the total management of trace and bulk cytotoxic waste. The eco-friendly Daniels Washsmart process uses a fully automated robotic washline, recycling water to minimise environmental impact, and achieve an unprecedented level of cleanliness and bacterial load reduction. The clear labelling and easily identifiable design of all Daniels containers encourages better waste segregation of chemotherapy-contaminated waste, medications and sharps disposal, resulting in fewer container exchanges and a safer greener planet!

We take pride in improving our environmental footprint; this is one of the reasons we selected Daniels Health for medical waste removal services.
