Maryland Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal Defined
Pharmaceuticals have high concentrations to help people in need, but this quality makes it difficult for them to degrade naturally. To protect the environment, the Environmental Protection Agency has created guidelines regarding pharmaceutical disposal.
Pharmaceuticals are designed to help people in need, in the wrong hands they can be damaging and pose serious health risks. To mitigate any negative consequences, the State Health Department has created rules for how expired medications should be handled.
Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?
Hazardous materials need to be handled with great care. To qualify as a hazardous material, your pharmaceuticals must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- The material may already be regulated by your state environmental agency
- The active ingredient in the pharmaceutical is listed as hazardous by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
- The material contains ingredient(s) that result in the pharmaceutical exhibiting signs of hazardous waste: corrosive, reactive/explosive, toxic/radioactive, or ignitable
If your pharmaceuticals meet any of the above requirements they are considered hazardous waste. Hazardous waste should be kept separate from all other types of medical waste. Our professionals can help you design a waste management program that will help you segregate hazardous waste.
