The Daniels Pharmasmart system introduces a modern standard of secure pharmaceutical waste disposal

Improper disposal or inadequate securing of pharmaceutical waste can significantly harm our waterways and wildlife. It also poses a serious risk to individuals who come into contact with opioids and other high-risk medications.  

Daniels Pharmasmart is America’s leading non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste container, designed with innovative anti-shatter material. Pharmasmart also features inbuilt permanent security locks and fixed wall-mounting brackets to prevent unauthorized removal or retrieval of substances.

Unlike typical pharmaceutical waste bins, Daniels’ reusable Pharmasmart requires no assembly or secondary packaging. Its hands-free design and advanced safety features prevent container tampering and the theft of expired or partially used medications.


  • Overfill protection – the disposal containers’ inbuilt safety tray restricts hand-access and overfilling
  • Thoughtful design – featuring a large aperture gravity-sensitive medications disposal tray, with anti-bounce design
  • Inbuilt risk-minimizing safety features – Pharmasmart can safely be positioned in a patient environment
  • Mobile dual-segregation trolley design – enabling pharmaceutical disposal at the patient’s bedside 




The Daniels Pharmasmart protects users not only in risk-free medication disposal, but also
eliminates "touch" and unauthorized container retrieval; safety features include: 


Daniels’ accessories facilitate hands-free disposal; the containers' no-touch design and robotic washing sanitization process eliminates contamination risk.  


Key-secured locking brackets secure Pharmasmart containers to a wall, eliminating risk of tampering, unauthorized removal or access to pharmaceutical contents 


The inbuilt safety tray installed in Pharmasmart containers eliminates hand-access to pharmaceutical contents and protects against container overfill and injury risk


The Pharmasmart is designed with temporary and permanent locks and a hand-restricting opening to eliminate container tampering or retrieval of liquid contents and solid, bulkier waste.

Understanding Medical Waste Container Colors

The color coding of medical waste is often considered as a critical requirement for pharmaceutical and healthcare waste management. The pharmaceutical waste container color code system simplifies the segregation of different types of non-hazardous and hazardous pharmaceutical waste, ensuring proper handling and disposal. 

Each pharmaceutical waste container color signifies a different types of waste. For instance, black containers are typically used for hazardous pharmaceutical waste, while purple containers are generally designated for non-hazardous waste. Understanding and implementing the correct pharmaceutical waste container color code is a best practice in healthcare waste management that should be abided by at all times.

Reduce your Costs

Adopting a hazardous vs non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste program can save your facility thousands of dollars each year.

In many hospitals and healthcare facilities across America, between 50% to 90% of the “black bin” waste being generated is actually non-hazardous pharmaceuticals, and yet it’s being disposed into a hazardous waste bin! 

Over-classification of pharmaceutical waste significantly impacts:

1. Increases of more than 200% in waste disposal costs
2. Increased environmental burden with one vs two waste streams
3. Unauthorized retrieval with the use of non-tamperproof containers

We place safety First.

Rather than relying on one-handed disposal, our innovative touchless containers and risk-minimizing safety technology has radically shaped hospital waste management across the world's leading healthcare brands. Led by science with products designed in partnership with clinicians, Daniels containers lead the world in best-practice waste containment.
