Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Portland Defined
It’s a strange juxtaposition that something that can be so helpful to a person can be just as hazardous to the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency along with your State Health Department is going to regulate any expired pharmaceuticals or other pharmaceutical waste.
The problem with pharmaceuticals that make them so dangerous is they are mostly high in concentration, making it difficult for the concentrations to degrade over time. As a result, there is a tremendous danger if these are not regulated and disposed of properly.
Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous Waste
For a pharmaceutical to be classified as hazardous waste it must meet these three 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.
After going through your pharmaceuticals, check and see if any of these items apply, and take the proper steps to ensure you are disposing of it safely. Our local providers can help make this process easy to make sure you are meeting state and federal regulations.
