Daniels Sharpsmart Provides New Options for Medical Waste Disposal on the East Coast
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Daniels Sharpsmart, Inc., the world's largest provider of reusable systems for sharps disposal and a major provider of medical waste services in the USA, is now servicing hospitals, clinics, medical and dental offices in Maryland, DC, Delaware and Pennsylvania from its recently opened Baltimore plant and central Florida from its new Orlando plant. Daniels will provide hospitals and other medical and dental facilities a safe, cost-effective and eco friendly option for sharps and medical waste disposal.
“Having demonstrated a commitment to quality, we’re confident that hospitals in these two regions want the best for their patients and healthcare workers and we’re looking forward to providing it,” said David Skinner, Vice President of Daniels Sharpsmart. “The management of medical sharps is much safer for nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers when using the Daniels Sharpsmart system. The opening of these new facilities allows us to bring these safety benefits to hospitals, labs and other healthcare facilities in these two regions and that’s great news for anyone who is at risk of needlestick injuries in their everyday work.”
Daniels launched its Sharpsmart system in 1999 and it is now the most widely researched sharps containment system in the world, the only system to have peer-reviewed confirmation of sharps injury reduction and the only system in which all container models meet the tests required by the European Agreement (AFG) on Transport of Dangerous Goods. A recent article published in the November issue of the Journal of Infection Control reported an 81 percent reduction in container-associated sharps injuries that occurred in a group of 14 hospitals using Daniels Sharpsmart containers over one year.
In addition to reusable sharps containers, Daniels offers complete medical waste removal and disposal services in compliance with all state and local regulations. These two facilities are expected to create up to 55 new jobs over the next two years, benefitting the local economies.

The company provides a fully integrated and technologically advanced system that ensures safe, cost effective and compliant disposal of sharps and medical and pharmaceutical waste.
