Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Elgin


Namesake of inspirational Scottish hymn “The Song of Elgin” due to the valiant efforts of the Gifford brothers, Elgin is now thriving effortlessly as “The City in the Suburbs.” From once operating as “the butter capital of the world” and the country’s largest producer of fine watches, to becoming the 8th largest city in Illinois today, Elgin is undoubtedly, and always has been, the perfect place to do business. 


Elgin’s allure rests not only in its historical appeal. Our team appreciates the breathtaking Bluff Spring Fen for its positively overwhelming, picturesque views. Featuring gravel hills, mineral saturated springs, and over 20 unique species of dragonflies, each visit is sure to end with a smile. After working up an appetite on our explorative quest, we enjoy heading down to the Grumpy Goat Tavern for a taste of the bayou. They certainly keep us at bay with their deliciously authentic Creole-style creations!

With equally admirable qualities, healthcare in Elgin is impressive as well. Our team commends the Advocate Sherman Hospital for its hard-working staff and noteworthy medical practices. The U.S. News and World Report acknowledges this phenomenal teaching facility as the best in the city, the 12th best in the Chicago region, and the 14th best in all of Illinois. For their outstanding professionalism and forward approach to 3 of their Adult Specialties, as well as 3 other various procedures, Advocate Sherman Hospital is also regarded as “High Performing.”

The resilient doctors and nurses of Elgin undoubtedly take pride in their duties, and we also take pride in providing tremendously brilliant healthcare waste management services.

With hands-free containers, comprehensive waste segregation and regulatory compliance guidance, we lower your risk of cross-contamination and improve cleanliness at your Elgin medical practice. 

The materials used to protect us from COVID-19 could possibly cause health issues for the public. A year after the start of the pandemic, over 390 million COVID-19 tests, all complete with swabs, have been administered. Thousands of hospitals have used tons of masks, gloves, and protective gowns, all resulting in an increase in medical waste. We ensure compliance and understanding of waste segregation within your medical practice by providing educational resources, as well as adhering to all Illinois EPA and national laws.

You will have access to waste disposal reports for each visit that detail the amount and types of waste disposed of, as well as the number of containers serviced. Certificates of Destruction are available for review also. Not to mention, you'll have access to the best reusable medical waste containers on the market!

Featured Product.


Trace chemotherapy waste, also referred to as cytotoxic waste, is a highly regulated stream that must be handled and disposed of carefully. Improper disposal can harm the environment and also the clinicians disposing of it. Daniels Health created the Chemosmart to provide a reusable chemo waste container for this waste stream that eliminated any unnecessary touches from clinicians during disposal. With the reduction of touches, the risk of infection and contamination drastically decrease. Why take the risk by using disposable alternatives?
