Pharmaceutical Waste and Houston Disposal Defined

Pharmaceuticals offer assistance to those prescribed a certain medication. But to the environment, or people who don’t require the aid of that pharmaceutical, they can be dangerous and harmful.

The State Health Department and the Environmental Protection Agency regulate expired pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical waste, because the high concentration often found in pharmaceuticals means they don’t degrade well over time, and their disposal can be problematic.

Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?

For a pharmaceutical to be classified as hazardous it must meet the following requirements:

  • The material is already regulated by your state environmental agency
  • 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 cause the pharmaceutical to exhibit characteristics of hazardous waste (ignitable, corrosive, toxic/radioactive, or reactive/explosive)


If any of the above characteristics describe your pharmaceutical waste, you need to properly dispose of them. Medical Waste Pros Houston will quickly connect you to disposal companies in your area who can help get the job done right.

Whether you need a one-time pick up, or ongoing service, our professionals are ready to lend a hand.
