Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Grand Rapids


Grand Rapids has won the coveted title of “Beer City USA” more than any other state. With many trendy things to do, it is a haven for young Americans. You can get your fix for ale, snowboarding, beachgoing, or art museums. GR really has it all and we are proud to work with local healthcare facilities. 

Life in Grand Rapids is largely formed around nature activities and sports. The city is named the best city for a multitude of activities including fishing and mountain biking. Did you know that there are 28 golf courses within 15 minutes of the city? That allows plenty of opportunities to get on the green. The beaches of West Michigan draw people from all over. In fact, many Chicagoans escape to the natural beauty of GR when they tire of the skyscrapers and concrete.

Another first of the city was to be the first US state to introduce fluoride in their drinking water. Always health focused, the city has evolved to have an intuitive website for the Kent County Health Department that keeps locals informed. One of our favorite features of the site is the resource on how to safely dispose of unwanted medications. Through that feature, GR can protect their groundwater and lakes from pharmaceutical pollution!

Beyond our love of all the outdoor activities here, we are passionate about preserving the environment, and that is where our story begins.


Grand Rapids Healthcare Waste Management with a difference.


When the US healthcare waste sector had been using the same medical waste containers and solutions as they were 20 years ago, we knew it was time for a change. By working with clinicians and gaining feedback on what was important to them in safe healthcare waste management solutions, we developed the world’s first reusable containers. Not only were we able to create sustainable solutions, but ones so safe that they’ve been scientifically proven to reduce the risk of sharps injuries. Made with impenetrable plastic, the Daniels containers are puncture-proof and have leakproof seals. We began our mission to reduce occupational hazards through innovation and that is what we will continue to do. As a full healthcare waste management partner, we provide Grand Rapid’s clinicians with premium medical waste containers. 


With a strong local infrastructure throughout Grand RapidsDaniels Health partners with hospitals and clinics across Michigan in providing reliable full-service disposal and treatment for all healthcare waste streams including: 

  • Biohazardous sharps disposal and red bag waste disposal 
  • Pathological waste and Trace Chemotherapy waste 
  • RCRA hazardous, Non-Hazardous Pharmaceutical waste and controlled substances 
  • Support on how to dispose of medical waste and other waste streams to reduce medical waste volumes and costs

  • Nursing home waste disposal, hospital waste disposal - we do it all! Services that cater for all sized facilities


We service locally.


Michigan was one of the first states we put extensive servicing routes and a waste treatment plant in. While we have now grown to have a national presence, we still hold dear our local impact on Michiganders. We have a dedicated team of drivers and field service technicians that provide excellent customer service to healthcare facilities. Our processing plant is overseen by exerts who manage our disposal, treatment, and robotic washing processes.

The Daniels Medismart container is the perfect solution for regulated medical waste. This system provides touch-free disposal when paired with our Accesssmart—complete with foot-pedal open. When clinicians can reduce their number of touches during disposal, they increase their safety and lower the risk of infection to themselves or patients. This container is also part of our premium reusable solutions so not only is it the safest container for regulated medical waste on the market, it is the most efficient for costs.
