Pharmaceutical Regulated Waste Management


Pharmaceutical regulated waste management can include waste streams such as medical and biohazardous waste, hazardous, non-hazardous or expired drugs, and patient records and confidential documents. Navigating through the complexities of requirements and compliance regulations managing pharmaceutical waste can be time-consuming or confusing. Local, state, and federal agencies have strict regulations in place to categorize, segregate, store, transport and dispose of pharmaceutical waste. While most pharmaceutical waste and medications are non-hazardous and RCRA hazardous, disposing of controlled substances such as narcotics typically require significant paperwork, special collecting, and specific disposal regulations. Expired medication and non-hazardous pharmaceuticals can be handled by your medical waste management company, like us at BWS that collects your sharps and biohazardous waste.
