Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Cedar Rapids


Located on the glistening banks of the Cedar River, with traces of the Moravian and Czech cultures featured throughout its infrastructure, Cedar Rapids is a charming city flourishing in culture and arts. For its history, festivals, and vibrance, we are absolutely thrilled to do business in the “City of Five Seasons.” 


Cedar Rapids is the ideal representation of luxury. Our team appreciates having the exquisite Brucemore mansion in our backyard. This stunning piece of architecture, featuring lavish craftsmanship and picturesque touches throughout, offers relaxing views of exotic art and furniture surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Once the home to three various wealthy families, the Brucemore is now the location for concerts and performances. We also enjoy heading down to 1st Avenue to enjoy dining at The Irish Democrat. We can always expect a delicious meal accompanied by a welcoming, comforting atmosphere, and we simply cannot resist a hearty, hot soup alongside their delectable grilled chicken cobb salad.

Cedar Rapids features wonderful healthcare right along with its polished presentation and satisfying cuisine. The UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Hospital has earned our admiration for their professional practices. (The U.S. News and World Report certainly agrees.) They have acknowledged this successful teaching hospital as the 4th best hospital in the state of Iowa. Also, for providing excellent care in the fields of Heart Failure, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair, Aortic Valve Surgery, Heart Bypass Surgery, Knee Replacement, and Hip Replacement, they are regarded as a “High Performing Hospital.”

The clinicians of Cedar Rapids continue to dominate the healthcare industry with professionalism and poise. In the same fashion, will continue to professionally provide irrefutable, reliable waste management services.


Cedar Rapids Healthcare Waste Management with a radical approach.


We have been driving innovations in medical waste disposal for over 30 years. At Daniels Health, we believe there is so much more to medical waste disposal than meets the eye. Beyond picking up your waste, we look at the total cost, environmental and safety impact of your current practices. Our products are engineered to make the lives of clinical staff easier and safer by reducing infection transfer risk, minimizing touches, & driving proper segregation outcomes. All of these factors directly impact your total cost of ownership. When you partner with Daniels Health, you will save costs across all areas of your waste management program and increase compliance standards at your Cedar Rapids facility.

We are experts in all clinical waste streams, including:

Our aim is to partner directly with your healthcare facility, reducing your risk of cross-contamination and improving cleanliness. We combat infection through proper hand hygiene practices and the use of medical waste containers that achieve the highest levels of bacterial load reduction.

The disposal of healthcare waste includes the methods of incineration, landfilling, and chemical treatments. The Iowa EPA requires that waste cannot be stored for more than 14 days at room temperature or 45 days in a refrigerator. This brief window of allotted time means that your team must be aware of compliance and regulatory laws before disposal, which is why we provide educational resources for assistance.

We provide access to waste disposal reports that detail the amount and types of waste disposed of, as well as the number of containers serviced for each visit. Access your Certificates of Destruction at any time as you enjoy the benefits of using the most effective biohazard waste containers available.
