Biomedical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Vancouver


Known as "Saltwater City," Vancouver has a city population of 650,000 and a greater urban area population of 2.5 million. It is the principal gateway to the glaciers of Alaska, the wilderness of western Canada, and the slopes of Whistler. With 35% of its population foreign born, Vancouver is the most culturally diverse city in Canada. Vancouver’s neighbourhoods are filled with an incredible array of aromas due to the diverse local cuisine, roasted coffee beans, and brewer’s hops. 


Vancouver protects their rivers, coastline, and forests in an effort to maintain the perfect balance between nature and the urban environment. Although Vancouver is blessed with the mildest climate of any Canadian city, it experiences an average of 165 days of rainfall every year.

Despite the often cloudy skies, Vancouver has previously been ranked by the Economist as the world's most livable city from 2002 to 2010, and again in 2015. While a spike in real estate prices has driven up the cost of living, Vancouver continues to boast an impressive livability score; including perfect scores in healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.

Home to five renowned universities, Vancouver is an education and medical research hub. Environmentalism and sustainability are priorities in Vancouver. In 1971, a group of Vancouver eco-activists formed Greenpeace, arguably the most successful and visible environmental group in the world.


Vancouver Healthcare Waste Management with a difference.

Daniels believes in bold ideas like reusable and sustainable healthcare waste containers. After years of engineering and scientific research, Daniels created a suite of sustainable solutions that not only increase the safety of healthcare workers but also patients. Our innovative systems reduce the number of touches during disposal and reduce the risk of infection. The Daniels solutions are designed with counter-balance safety trays that provide overfill protection and leak-proof seals. We are a full healthcare waste management partner for Canadians.

Featured Product.


While many are familiar with our Sharpsmart with the tamper-proof, tilt tray in the aperture, we also have a Sharpsmart Access Plus without the tray. The benefit of the Sharpsmart Access Plus is the same wide aperture, but the user isn’t impeded by the safety tray. The lack of a tray makes it ideal for secure environments where healthcare waste is generated, like surgery suites. With a variety of sizes, the Sharpsmart Access Plus can be strategically placed in a secure area to increase efficiency and ease of disposal.
