Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal
Pharmaceutical waste is a very complex waste stream for medical waste disposal. It is generated through a wide variety of activities in a healthcare facility. Pharmaceutical waste includes, but not limited to:
• Partially used vials (safety caps removed)
• Un-dispensed medication
• Pre-filled syringes
• Pre-instilled IVs
• Patients’ personal medications
• Hospital repacks
• Outdated or discontinued pharmaceuticals
• General compounding
• Physician RX samples
Complying with these regulations is no easy task; pharmaceutical waste needs to be segregated into the appropriate category so it is disposed of in full compliance with all state and federal regulations.
Pharmaceutical waste can be categorized into Non-RCRA pharmaceutical, RCRA Hazardous (www.epa.gov/epawaste/index.htm) and DEA Controlled.
