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.
