Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Reading


Conveniently situated halfway between the state’s scenic capital, Harrisburg, and the hustle and bustle of The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, lies the city of Reading, Pennsylvania.  Former home to the well-known explorer Daniel Boone, and the Reading Railroad, the charming old-world city has evolved into thriving town with a heartbeat of its own. 


Ahead of its time since its humble beginning, Reading was actually one of the first cities where shopping attracted tourism in the area. Producing at least one-third of all America’s pretzels, Reading holds true to its nickname of the “Pretzel City.” We love to tantalize our taste buds by snacking on a bag of crunchy, old-fashioned pretzels from America’s first pretzel baking family at Tom Sturgis Pretzels. We also love to explore the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts for our cultural and artistic fix. Being unimpressed becomes almost impossible while being surrounded by 145,000 feet of vibrant arts and crafts studios – ceramics and printmaking to name a couple.

Just as Reading carefully crafts its entertainment, it effortlessly provides advanced and effective healthcare. We are impressed by the Reading Hospital – Tower Health’s approach to healing. They have consistently won a number of awards and accolades for their persistence and dedication, examples including: America’s 100 Best Hospital Award from 2017-2019, as well as a Magnet recognition, the most prestigious nursing award given, from The American Nurses Credentialing Center in 2019. Just as Tower Health requires excellence from its healthcare officials and staff, we stand to provide excellent healthcare waste management.

Beyond our love for pretzels and the arts, we are also passionate about healthcare, and this is where our story begins.


Reading Healthcare Waste Management with a clinical edge 


Handling and disposing of infectious waste or regulated medical waste streams can be confusing, especially when it comes to the categorization of hazardous or non hazardous pharmaceutical waste and at what stage IV bags, used sharps, bandages or human tissue become regulated medical waste. Daniels Health was founded as an innovation company focused on delivering safer and more secure waste containers (sharps, chemotherapy waste, pharmaceutical waste and RMW) to the US healthcare sector. Partnering with hospitals, dialysis centers, and hundreds of primary care facilities across Pennsylvania and the US, we quickly realized that healthcare facilities didn’t just need a safer, cleaner or more compliant container, they needed a partner that would manage every facet of their waste management from compliance and waste audits right through to medical waste collection, treatment and disposal.

Daniels impact since 2002 in North America has been significant – thousands of needlestick injuries reduced, millions of pounds of waste saved from landfill, and a proven safety-focused hospital waste management model that protects healthcare workers, minimizes costs through effective segregation and supports environmental outcomes. We teach healthcare facilities how to correctly dispose of their bloody gauze or expired medications, we provide tools to educate and aid OSHA compliance, and we design a waste management collection schedule that supports your facility’s waste volumes and needs. Daniels introduces a radically different model of biohazardous waste management – one that is not only focused on reliable service and transparent pricing but a model absolutely grounded in safety and infection control. We provide clinical solutions that deliver a clinical result.
