Our Pharmaceutical Waste Management Services Ensure Total Compliance

Disposal of pharmaceutical waste is regulated by federal and Arizona state regulations. Determining which regulations are applicable depends on the volume and specific type of waste generated by your business. US Bio-Clean will assist you in developing a pharmaceutical waste disposal program to meet the applicable regulatory requirements. We have developed simple and cost effective programs to help our customers manage all types of pharmaceutical waste.

Some pharmaceuticals are classified as hazardous waste. The Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) has classified certain drugs as “hazardous” to humans, animals and the environment. Proper disposal of hazardous waste is mandated by EPA under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”).

Our Pharmaceutical Disposal Services Help Keep Medicines Out of Arizona’s Drinking Water

Other pharmaceuticals that are not regulated under RCRA are often called non-hazardous pharmaceuticals. According to EPA and numerous peer-reviewed articles, the presence of pharmaceuticals in drinking water and/or groundwater in the United States is a serious public health concern. Best management practices encourage the disposal of all pharmaceuticals by incineration.

Pharmaceuticals should never be placed into medical red bag waste or sharps containers because such waste is treated by methods other than incineration. Separation of these items into a dedicated Pharmaceutical Waste Container helps to ensure proper disposal.

Our pharmaceutical waste services will help your practice safely and legally dispose of:

  • Partially used medicines
  • Unused pharmaceutical drug samples
  • Expired medications

We Offer Drug Disposal Resources to Help You Avoid the Risk of Noncompliance

It’s ultimately the responsibility of businesses that dispose of pharmaceuticals (the waste generators) to make a final determination regarding whether such pharmaceuticals are RCRA – hazardous wastes, chemotherapy agents or FDA controlled substances. US Bio-Clean of Arizona will help you effectively manage the confusing process of properly disposing of all categories of pharmaceutical wastes.
