Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Bountiful, Utah
Not properly handling expired pharmaceuticals can cause great harm to the environment because such waste does not naturally degrade. Disposing them in the trash or flushing them down the drain is not proper disposal and does not protect the environment because it can contaminate the water supply.
To keep everyone safe, including communities and local environments, the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department have developed regulations as to how to properly dispose of expired pharmaceuticals.
Is Your Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?
Some pharmaceuticals are classified as hazardous, and must be treated as hazardous waste. To be considered hazardous a pharmaceutical must meet at least one of the below requirements:
- The material is already regulated by your state environmental agency.
- The sole active ingredient in the material is listed as hazardous by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
- Its material contains ingredient(s) that result in the pharmaceutical exhibiting characteristics of hazardous waste (corrosive, reactive/explosive, ignitable, or toxic/radioactive).
If any of the above qualifications apply to your pharmaceutical waste, treat it as hazardous. Medical Waste Pros Bountiful partners with several hazardous waste removal companies, and can help you find a suitable match.
