Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Atlanta Defined

Pharmaceutical waste poses a threat to the environment because it does not degrade naturally. It requires special destruction techniques at designated facilities.

Both the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department regulate the disposal of pharmaceuticals, because although these items can help people who have a prescription, they can be harmful to other people and the environment.

Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?

To be considered hazardous, a material must meet the following requirements:

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) must list the sole active ingredient as hazardous

  • The Georgia state environmental agency must already regulate it
  • It must contain ingredient(s) that result in the pharmaceutical exhibiting characteristics of hazardous waste (corrosive, ignitable, reactive/explosive, or toxic/radioactive)
