Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in IL

Expired pharmaceuticals pose a risk to the environment because they do not degrade naturally. Improper disposal practices, such as dumping in landfills or flushing down drains, result in the contamination of water supplies and the long-lasting presence of hazardous chemicals in the environment.

In order to protect communities and preserve local ecosystems, regulatory entities such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and State Health Departments have established strict regulations. These outline appropriate procedures for the disposal of expired pharmaceuticals. They are designed to promote the safe and responsible handling of pharmaceutical waste. This minimizes its adverse impacts on the environment and public health.

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:

1) The material is already regulated by your state environmental agency.

2) The sole active ingredient in the material is listed as hazardous by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

3) 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 into any of the mentioned categories, it is considered hazardous waste and necessitates specialized handling.
