Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Georgia
When you’ve got Georgia on your mind, it’s hard not to think of peaches, peanuts, Coca-Cola, Gone with the Wind and the iconic voices of Otis Redding and Ray Charles. Sitting on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, Georgia neighbors Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Florida and Alabama. Home to about 10.5 million, this state is bursting with history, a unique gastronomical footprint and goobers (that’s peanuts for the rest of us).
If you’re looking for scenic beaches, rugged mountain ranges, waterfalls, theme parks, wildlife, soul food or cosmopolitan cities, the Georgians have it all at their doorstep. From Atlanta, the state’s capital, you can bike, skate, run or saddle up on the ‘Silver Comet Trail’ all the way to Alabama. If driving is more your thing, stop by the world’s largest drive-in diner, Varsity. Set on 2 acres, these guys churn out 2,500 lbs. of potatoes, 5,000 fried pies, 300 gallons of chili and 2 miles of hot dogs from scratch EVERY day! Need to get back to nature? Take a trip to Stone Mountain Park, packed with stunning hiking trails. In summer they put on the world’s largest laser light show and snow tubing is a must in winter. In the spring you must visit Macon, the cherry blossom capital of the world - it's magical when all the trees are on bloom!
If adrenaline is more your thing, hurtle down the 11-storey ‘Georgia Scorcher’ rollercoaster at Six Flags. Try fly-boarding or zoom across the lake on a zip line at Lanier Islands’ Margaritaville or brave the Toccoa River Swinging Bridge. For sports fans, every April, eyes are on Augusta for The Masters golf tournament or catch the Atlanta Braves or the Atlanta Falcons at a home game. If you prefer to participate, the ‘Peach Tree Road Race’ is on every 4th of July weekend.
If size matters, you can’t miss the Jimmy Carter Smiling Peanut, Marietta’s Big Chicken, Ashburn’s Giant Peanut Monument, Expedition Bigfoot at the Sasquatch Museum or paying a visit to the stunning Hindu Temple of Atlanta, the largest Hindu temple outside of India. If mini is more your thing, The Dwarf Castle in Alpharetta, Roosevelt’s Little White House in Warm Springs and Atlanta’s Tiny Doors should all be on your to-see list. Foodies can’t take a trip to Georgia without sampling local delicacies including: snow cream, chicken mull, biscuits and gravy, sweet Vidalia onions and boiled green peanuts.
and then there is healthcare...
We take the guesswork out of healthcare waste management
Georgia is home to Emory University, one of America’s premier research universities, and also the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, which brings together the research from the university’s schools of nursing, medicine and public health. Where there are healthcare and research facilities, there is biohazardous and medical waste. Daniels Health is your complete healthcare waste management solutions partner servicing the ‘Peach State’. The DNR (Department of Natural Resources) regulates Georgia’s Solid Waste Management Program, and medical waste disposal rules in Georgia apply to all waste generators. With over 18 years experience serving healthcare facilities across the United States, we know a thing or two about medical waste disposal! If there was a quiz show about reusable sharps containers, haz and non-hazardous pharmaceutical segregation, formulary analysis, or the complicated landscape of waste compliance, we would absolutely win it!
