Research Universities & Laboratories

Looking for a single vendor to handle
all healthcare waste streams?


With over 30 years of clinical experience serving university hospitals, laboratories and medical research facilities, Daniels Health is focused on delivering solutions that make sense from all standpoints of safety, sustainability, cost effectiveness and efficiency. We’re the first to admit that there are no two facilities alike; varying medical waste streams, waste volumes, segregation imperatives and limitations of space and movement – we get that “off the shelf” just simply does not work. 

Industry experts in the regulatory compliance and governance of collecting, transporting and treating all medical waste streams including sharps, biomedical, anatomical, cytotoxic, pharmaceutical waste and controlled substances, Daniels Health eliminates the need for multiple vendors. With a range of engineered containment systems that have been developed in partnership with healthcare professionals to achieve optimum safety, indestructability, liquid containment and movement efficiency, and a comprehensive national service model that enables customised solutions for each facility we work with… we don’t just deliver a medical waste service, we deliver a partnership that radically optimises the safety, labour and cost efficiencies and green ratings of your facility. 

Let us show you what we’re capable of… 


The most innovative and cost-effective Research & Laboratory solutions in Canada


Daniels unique services deliver substantial cost savings. Our reusable containers eliminate the purchasing, assembly and disposal costs of boxes and disposable containers, removing a significant cost surplus from your biomedical waste management.  


With containment systems to suit all locations and volume requirements, and flexible service scheduling to cater for each customers' waste volume requirements, Daniels ensures minimum disruption to your facility.


Daniels container mounting and movement accessories enable sharps and biomedical waste containers to be positioned at point of care, flexible options for wall mounting, bench mounting or mobile trolleys to wheel containers in and out of patient environments.


With Daniels, you can know exactly what you are paying. With no hidden costs, no automatic price increases or contract renewals, and transparent customer service, we position ourselves as a partner rather than a provider. 


Choosing reusable containers dramatically reduces the volume of plastic and cardboard being disposed of in landfill, together with lessening CO2 emissions by the elimination of manufacturing and destruction. 


Experts in navigating the complexities of provincial and federal regulations, Daniels partners with healthcare facilities to ensure compliant practices are achieved through all waste management practices, and facility risk exposure is minimised.

  • "I would recommend Daniels..."

    We had used a local competitor for many years before switching to Daniels, our only regret is that we did not change sooner. I would recommend them to any medical facility looking for biomedical waste removal.

  • "Partnership in Sustainability..."

    Here at Centegra we are all about our future footprint concerning our environmental waste, this is where Daniels Health and Centegra become a very good match. Centegra’s working relationship with Daniels has been very professional throughout the years. One of the outstanding points that comes to mind is the reliability that Daniels has proven time and time again.

  • "Always there to help..."

    We've had a contract with Daniels Health for the past 9 years. We had issues with pharmaceutical waste and contacted Daniels to put the RX reusable pharmaceutical waste program in place, since then we are legally doing the right thing. If we have questions or concerns, Daniels is always there to try to help in any way they can. Thank you Daniels for your support and services!

    Roger Charest, Environmental Services Manager, Vitalite Healthcare
  • "I am impressed..."

    I have had the opportunity to tour Daniels' recycling facility and am satisfied that sharps are handled appropriately at Daniels' sites; the containers provided to us have been in virtually "like new" condition. I am especially impressed by the support we have received from the company both during the trial and afterward.
