Safer for the environment

By using the Daniels Sharpsmart system, your environmental impact will be significantly reduced each year.

It’s not rocket science! It has been well-known for many years that the best approach to  waste management is to work according to the effectiveness hierarchy of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle".

Reusable Sharpsmart containers for sharps & pharmaceutical waste are the key element of Daniels’ service and by reusing containers instead of throwing them out, a significant reduction to overall waste volumes can be made.

In general terms, the use of reusable sharps containers is likely to reduce the volume of plastic in sharps waste by over 25% when compared with disposable sharps container systems and studies conducted with the Sharpsmart system confirm this.

But a complete life cycle assessment of reusable and disposable sharps containers reveals that the overall ‘carbon footprint’ of a Sharpsmart reusable container can be up to 76% less than that of disposable containers.
