What is Pharmaceutical Waste?

In certain doses, and when prescribed, pharmaceuticals can greatly help patients in need. But if drugs are flushed down the toilet and enter the water system, or thrown in the garbage and left to decompose in the environment, there are harmful repercussions to the community. Many pharmaceuticals have high concentrations, which don’t degrade well over time. To mediate this issue, the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department regulated the disposal of pharmaceutical waste and expired drugs.
