COVID-19 Vaccine Disposal  

COVID-19 waste handling and the collection and disposal of vaccine residue and contaminated sharps 


As the industry leader in safety engineered devices for the containment of sharps and pharmaceuticals, we pride ourselves as experts in the safe and compliant management of all vaccines, sharps and pharmaceutical waste. Across the United States we have been ensuring inventory to accommodate the surge of both pharmaceutical and sharps containers required for disposal of COVID-19 vaccines, rapid antigen tests or near-empty sharps as well as strengthening our service infrastructure to support timely responsiveness to demand.



COVID-19 Vaccine Disposal Management | An Integrated Partnership 

An integral part of COVID-19 vaccinations is not only temperature-controlled storage requirements of unused vaccines, but also the safe and compliant disposal of expired medications, rapid antigen tests, partially used vaccines and expunged syringes with trace amounts of vaccine. As a full service partner, Daniels Health manages every aspect of COVID-19 vaccine collection and disposal, from the provision of industry-leading containment systems that are hands-free and designed with inbuilt safety mechanisms, through to the compliant collection, transport and waste treatment of bulk vaccines or contaminated sharps

  • "I definitely recommend..."

    Daniels and Paul Oliver have a good working relationship.  We really like the Sharpsmart for their safety and durability as well as the process Daniels uses makes sure the containers are clean and smelling good when returned back to the hospital.  Both Daniels and the hospital are ECO friendly so the match is good between us. I would definitely recommend Daniels.
