Retail Pharmacies and Drug Stores generate medical waste like any other facility or business that’s related to the healthcare industry.
With blood drives, immunizations, expired medications, and other testing materials that pharmacies work with on a regular basis, the need for secure and safe pharmaceutical waste management and medical waste disposal for sharps and regulated waste is a necessity.
Pharmacies are also a point of contact for the public for expired medications and used Sharps materials. That’s why pharmacies have the requirements in place to handle medical waste properly.
Medical Waste Pros can connect pharmacies throughout the United States with a reputable medical waste disposal company to ensure that they’re protecting their employees, customers, and sanitation workers by disposing of Sharps and regulated medical waste properly.
Pharmaceutical Companies also generate their fair share of medical waste- they are required to comply with the same medical waste disposal regulations for any substance that’s defined as a hazardous material.
If they’re conducting testing onsite, proper disposal of any contaminated materials and Sharps also need to be handled safely.
