Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Cincinnati Defined
Pharmaceutical waste and pharmaceuticals that have expired are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department.
With most medicines containing very high concentrations of ingredients that do not degrade over time, they can enter the community’s water system if they are flushed down the toilet or thrown in the garbage. These can have disastrous impacts on the community’s wildlife and the people exposed to the contaminated by-products.
Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous Waste?
In order to classify as hazardous waste, pharmaceuticals must meet these requirements:
- The sole active ingredient in the pharmaceutical that needs to be disposed of is listed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as a hazardous waste,
- It contains ingredient(s) that result in the pharmaceutical exhibiting characteristics of hazardous waste (ignitable, corrosive, reactive/explosive, or toxic/radioactive), which requires that it be treated as hazardous waste under RCRA.
- The material is already regulated by your state environmental agency.
We can connect you with local service providers who know how to deal with these hazardous pharmaceuticals safely and in compliance with all local laws and regulations.
From one-time pickups to regularly scheduled services, our local services have options to cover all your organization’s needs.
