Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Richmond


Richmond is a city that's impossible to not fall in love with. RVA is full of rich history from early colonial settlers, the nascent days of the US development, and has now grown to be a trendy location for young people to build families. Settled along the James River, RVA is also known as “The River City.” 


Life in Richmond heavily revolves around its historical significance as the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Early settlers saw the value in the area, and it has only grown even more lustrous. To really visit the past, you have to go to St. John’s Church where Patrick Henry gave his famous, “Give me liberty or give me death” speech in 1775.

Our favorite places to go in RVA are actually mostly food-based; we think Capital Square has some of the best dining around. It’s wonderful to sit outside during the Virginia summers and have a meal with friends. We’re also a bit of caffeine snobs which is why we love to frequent The Lab by Alchemy for their Japanese pour over coffee; it is absolutely decadent! You can settle there and get some work done or take a walk around the city to admire the cast-iron architecture. Did you know RVA has the most cast-iron architecture in America after New Orleans?

Beyond our love of a good cup of coffee, we are passionate about healthcare, and this is where our story begins.


Richmond Healthcare Waste Management with purpose.


Clinician safety must be a priority. Full stop. Daniels Health recognized that the solutions for healthcare waste management in the US sector were not innovative enough to protect those who used them. Our founder asked why the rate of sharps injuries and infection during medical waste disposal was still so high among clinicians. With that question in mind, Daniels developed a team and invested in rigorous research to create healthcare waste management solutions designed with clinician feedback and rooted in safety. After 35 years in the industry, we are happy to say our reusable healthcare waste containers, made with impenetrable plastic and leakproof seals, are now known worldwide as the safest on the market. As a full partner for healthcare facilities, we will always create solutions for you that are built to protect.

Featured Product.


Risk of infection or injury should not be something clinicians have to worry about when disposing of regulated medical waste. Daniels partnered with healthcare workers to find out what safety features you wanted in an RMW container – we then developed our Medismart container based off that feedback. The Medismart is a touch-free solution when combined with our soft-close Accessmart Cart. The cart allows you to move the system throughout your facility with ease, ensuring point-of-use disposal.
