Miami Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal Services
Throughout Florida and the rest of the country it’s important that producers of medical waste responsibly dispose of it. Having a plan with step-by-step instructions can help mitigate the difficulty of managing medical waste, but there are still complications that make it tough to manage.
Ever-changing laws at the federal and state level need to be carefully followed, especially regarding pharmaceutical waste. Pharmaceuticals don’t degrade over-time, making them a pain to get rid of. Expired medications, drugs, medicament, and more need to be handled with care so as not to cause damage to the environment, or fall into the wrong hands.

Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Miami Defined
Pharmaceutical waste is regulated by the State Health Department and the Environmental Protection Agency. Pharmaceuticals do not degrade over time, so their disposal must be carefully executed.
The high concentrations present in many pharmaceuticals can help people in need, but can be harmful to people not prescribed the medication, and to the environment. Avoid flushing pills and don’t throw them in the normal trash, use a service provider for help with proper disposal.
Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?
Hazardous waste is defined by a few key components which will determine if your pharmaceuticals are hazardous:
- The main active ingredient in the pharmaceutical must be listed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as a hazardous waste.
- The pharmaceutical must contain at least one ingredient that exhibits the following characteristics: ignitable, reactive/explosive, corrosive, or toxic/radioactive
- The pharmaceutical is already regulated by your state environmental agency as hazardous
If your pharmaceuticals meet any of the above requirements, do not throw them in the normal trash—take care to dispose of them properly through a designated disposer. Whether you need a onetime disposal or recurring services, we can help!
