We’ll Help You Meet Regulatory Requirements
The proper disposal of pharmaceutical waste is required by federal and state regulations. Some pharmaceuticals are classified as hazardous waste by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and fall under the EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Other pharmaceuticals are not regulated under RCRA and are often called nonhazardous pharmaceuticals. All pharmaceuticals should be disposed of by incineration. They should never be placed into red bags or sharps containers because such waste is treated by methods other than incineration. Separation of these items into dedicated pharmaceutical waste containers helps to ensure proper disposal. It’s ultimately your organization’s responsibility (the waste generators) to determine whether such pharmaceuticals are RCRA hazardous waste, chemotherapy agents or DEA-controlled substances. And that’s where we come in. US Bio-Clean can help you determine which regulations are applicable to your business and develop a pharmaceutical waste disposal program to meet the necessary regulatory requirements.
