Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Colorado
Expired pharmaceuticals present a significant environmental threat as they do not naturally degrade. Improper disposal methods, such as landfill dumping or flushing them down drains, contaminate water supplies and contribute to the persistent presence of harmful chemicals in the environment.
To protect communities and preserve local environments, regulatory entities such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and State Health Departments have implemented rigorous regulations that outline appropriate protocols for the disposal of expired pharmaceuticals. These regulations aim to promote the safe and responsible handling of pharmaceutical waste. They also help to reduce its impact on the environment and public health.
Is Your Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?
Some pharmaceuticals are classified as hazardous, and must be treated primarily 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 your pharmaceutical waste falls under any of the criteria mentioned, it is classified as hazardous and necessitates specialized handling. It is imperative to handle such waste with care and promptly contact a hazardous waste specialist in your local area.
