Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Boston Defined

Both the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department are responsible for regulating pharmaceutical waste and expired pharmaceuticals. Medicines have high concentrations to help people in need, but when in the wrong hands or left to naturally decompose they can be harmful.

High concentrations don’t degrade easily overtime, and they can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of through proper techniques. For safety reasons, the disposal of pharmaceuticals must be taken seriously.

Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?

Hazardous waste is defined as:

  • Waste where the sole active ingredient is named hazardous by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
  • Waste with ingredients that exhibit characteristics of hazardous waste as defined by the RCRA, including corrodibility, ignitability, reactivity/explosiveness, or toxicity/radioactivity.
