Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal at Prince Edward Island 


The pastoral landscape of Canada’s smallest province is famous for its white sand beaches, ocean coves, and rolling hills. With more than 1,760 km of coastline and 231 neighbouring islands, the natural beauty of Prince Edward Island (PEI) is adoringly referred to as the “Garden of the Gulf”. 


In addition to having a coastal charm, Prince Edward Island (named after Queen Victoria’s father - Edward, Duke of Kent) is an agricultural hub of Canada. With farming being the backbone of the economy and producing 25% of Canada’s potatoes, it’s no surprise that the province has earned the fitting nickname of, “Spud Island.” If you love long walks on the beach and French fries, (who doesn’t?!) then this is the place for you.

As the bread-basket of Canada, it’s no surprise that the local government has made it a priority to protect the integrity and environmental health of the lands. Island Water Technologies, a PEI based company, specialises in modular, solar powered wastewater treatment solutions, providing self-powered wastewater treatment for domestic and industrial industries. Another company, Antlantec BioEnergy Corporation, uses locally ground sugar beets as a main feedstock, promoting regional economic development for the island!

One of Daniels’ principle founding values is to achieve the highest level of ecology possible when designing and implementing healthcare waste management systems. By using the Daniels Sharpsmart reusable container, your environmental impact will be significantly reduced each year. Annually, the system diverts millions of pounds of plastic and cardboard from landfill, and, with its 50 year life cycle, the Daniels Sharpsmart sharps container single-handedly eliminates the manufacturing of hundreds of thousands of disposable products. 



Biomedical waste disposal designed around Safety and Sustainability 


At Daniels Health, we lead all of our Canadian healthcare waste services and operations with a green focus. Managing infectious materials and high-risk biomedical waste puts a lot of responsibility on us as a healthcare waste transport, disposal and treatment provider; we take this responsibility seriously and offer trustworthy cradle-to-grave compliance.

Incorrectly managed healthcare waste can have a detrimental impact on the environment. For example, if not disposed of properly, infectious materials and controlled substances can make their way into landfills and waterways; resulting in pollution of clean drinking water and harming local wildlife. To further drive the importance of proper healthcare waste management home, incorrectly disposed sharps can pose a high risk to both laundry staff and environmental services - putting them at risk for injury or infection while they are performing their job duties. 




A growing healthcare industry brings with it biomedical waste, which is referred to in Prince Edward Island as
“clinical waste, biohazardous and/or infectious waste” and can include, but isn’t limited to:

  • Clinical Waste Disposal 
  • Sharps disposal 
  • Anatomical Waste Disposal 
  • Controlled Substance Disposal
  • Cytotoxic waste disposal 
  • Metal recycling 


With over 30 years of industry experience serving healthcare, Daniels Health have a strong track record of partnership with over 8,000 hospitals and healthcare facilities in both acute and non-acute space in North America. Our products are industry-leading, designed by clinicians for the safety and security of healthcare workers handling high-risk waste. Our services are designed to seamlessly integrate with the fluctuating requirements of healthcare. Daniels was the pioneer or reusable sharps containers and since 1997 has led the industry in a safer alternative to single-use sharps containment. Peer reviewed in five medical journals for their superior results in driving needlestick injury reduction, Daniels' Sharpsmart containers are still today considered the safest sharps containers in the world. With solutions for all waste streams, Daniels is the leading partner in healthcare waste services for Prince Edward Island facilities.
