Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Springfield


Once the noteworthy home of famous president Abraham Lincoln, affectionately referred to as the “Long Nine,” Springfield is now the capital and star city of the state of Illinois. As it sits proudly perched on the gorgeous waters of the Sangamon River, still showcasing its rich history today, we can gladly say we have chosen a wonderful place to do business.


Springfield is surely one of the Midwest’s most valuable gems. Our team certain appreciates attending the International Route 66 Mother Road Festival every September to admire the intricately decorated hot rods and motorcycles, as well as to enjoy the feel-good mood inspired the soothing sounds of live music. We also enjoy indulging in a true taste of history at the Cozy Dog Drive-In, where we enjoy yummy, golden corn dogs still made with WWII veteran Ed Waldmire Jr.’s famous batter recipe. (Talk about doggone delicious!)

Immaculate healthcare is yet another lovely feature offered by the city of Springfield. Our team applauds the inspiring medical staff of Memorial Medical Center for consistently surpassing expectations. This amazing teaching facility is ranked by the U.S. News & World Report as the best hospital in Springfield, as well as the 14th best hospital in the whole state of Illinois. They are also regarded as “High Performing” for exemplary practices involving 7 various procedures and conditions.

The clinicians working diligently behind the scenes in Springfield truly honor and respect their craft, and it shows. We operate using those same principles, and with every visit, we promise to deliver magnificent, dependable healthcare waste management services. 


Springfield Healthcare Waste Management with a difference.


Our impact on medical waste management in Illinois is deep. With our headquarters based in Chicago, we are proudly partnered with some of the industry’s top healthcare systems, such as Advocate Aurora and Rush University Medical Center. Our approach is different because we focus on driving clinical outcomes like labor, waste volumes, and cost reductions at your Springfield medical facility. We don’t use any third-parties in the cradle-to-grave management of your medical waste because it is important to us that each step of your journey is handled with compliance and care. Rather than drafting a generic contract, we partner with your healthcare facility to determine your individual medical waste disposal needs. Our tailor-made approach allows us to focus on clinical safety through waste movement audits, solution scoping, and clinically designed containment solutions.

Our services include the disposal of all waste streams, including:

  • Sharp Disposal
  • Regulated medical waste (red bag waste) 
  • Trace Chemotherapy (cytotoxic waste) 
  • Expired RX Pharmaceuticals Disposal & Controlled Substances
  • Pathological waste 
  • Hazardous Waste 
  • Surgical Device Recovery

Medical Waste Disposal for all-sized patient care facilities in Springfield

Here is what a partnership with Daniels Health looks like:

  • Say “goodbye” to guesswork with our clear, definitive contracts that allow you to pay for services as needed.
  • To reduce your carbon footprint, we implement reusable medical waste containers that save energy during production and distribution.
  • Whether a small outpatient care facility or general practice, or a large teaching hospital, our services are fitting for medical practices of any size.
  • A detailed 6-year, 3-phase study concluded that within two years, the use of our Sharpsmart biohazard sharps container resulted in 100% reduction and elimination of container-associated needlestick injuries.
  • Our accessory systems improve your facility by optimizing space, surpassing logistical obstacles, and enabling point-of-use disposal for your convenience.
  • We work to protect frontline clinical staff through comprehensive waste segregation and online education programs that ensure understanding.  



We reduce your contamination risk with improved cleanliness. We lower infection levels by ensuring a low volume of patient interruptions, as well as reducing the number of times waste is handled. With a deep, thorough sanitation process, our containers are sure to reduce your risk of cross-contamination as well.

Annually, over 16 billion injections are administered across the globe, many of which happen to end in improper disposal. Countless studies have proven that healthcare waste contains harmful bacteria, which can in turn infect patients, workers, and the public when disposed of incorrectly. We provide educational materials to help your team better understand Illinois medical waste regulations. We also help you maintain compliance by closely following all rules set forth by the Illinois EPA

Daniels Health will also provide your facility with waste disposal reports for each visit. You will be able to see the amount and types of waste disposed of and the number of containers serviced. We provide Certificates of Destruction as well. Along with refreshing professionalism, enjoy the use of the most effective biohazard waste containers available.




We service locally.


Daniels Health has worked hard to have the national logistic servicing capabilities that we have today. However, we put most of our energy into always providing local service that is of the highest quality. With local service, and processing plants, we can ensure that all efficiencies are optimized. Why does this matter? With increased optimization means lowered overall costs, improved compliance, and increased safety measures for our customers. We are dedicated to providing you an excellent customer experience.

Why use a single-use disposable sharps container when there are better options on the market that increase your safety and improve sustainability? The Daniels Sharpsmart container is more than a reusable sharps container, it is a safety-engineered device that has been proven to lower sharps injuries in clinicians. Our Sharpsmart is designed with impenetrable plastic, overfill protection, and a counter-balance tray. We understand that each facility has different medical waste and volume needs—that’s why we have a variety of container sizes.
