Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Knoxville


Located along the Tennessee River in eastern Tennessee, Knoxville “Marble City” is one of the largest cities in the state. Ironically, the marble nickname is a misnomer for an abundance of a resource that turned out to be limestone! Either way, Daniels Health knows this city shines and is proud to call it home. 


One immediately noticeable influence in Knoxville is the Appalachian culture. It’s one of largest cities in the Appalachian region and a gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains. Luckily, our drivers that provide local healthcare waste management enjoy the twists and turns of the mountain roads. The routes in this area are easily some of the most magnificent – especially during the fall when the leaves in the valley are changing.

However, our favorite season to be in Knoxville is hands-down summer. The Second Bell Festival is something we look forward to every year. It’s a small event along the river that packs a big punch with music performances, comedy, and lots of food. As you look out from the festival you can easily make out the iconic Sunsphere. Built in 1982 for the World’s Fair, which Knoxville was the smallest city to ever host, each window pane of the SunSphere is made of 24-karat gold. Talk about fancy!

Aside from our love of all the fun to be had in Knoxville, we’re passionate about healthcare, and that is where our story begins.


Knoxville Healthcare Waste Management with a difference.


The US Healthcare waste sector is a surprisingly competitive market which is why we choose to stand out on two core values: clinical solutions for healthcare waste that protect and customer-centric service. We came to the US sector over 35 years ago and saw that clinicians had very few options when it came to safe biohazard medical waste containers and disposal; our founder and his team set out to change that. Now the Daniels system is implemented in healthcare facilities all across the nation. Our reusable containers have over 20 safety features! Just a few of the features included in all our sustainable options are: leakproof seals, impenetrable plastic, and inbuilt locking systems. As a full healthcare management partner, we don't just deliver the industry's safest containers for Knoxville healthcare facilities, we also deliver services, scheduling and regulatory guidance.
