Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Orlando Defined

Pharmaceuticals are created as a means of helping patients with illnesses and symptoms of disease. While pharmaceuticals offer a benefit, they can also be a detriment if they are improperly disposed of.

Due to the nature of pharmaceuticals’ high concentrations of the active ingredients, they do not degrade over time and can contaminate the surrounding environment.

Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous Waste?

Here are the classifications for pharmaceuticals to be considered hazardous waste:

  • The sole active ingredient in the pharmaceutical must be 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) per RCRA.
  • The material is already regulated by your state environment agency.


If your pharmaceutical waste meets any of these requirements, then it is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly.

From a single pickup to regularly scheduled services, we can match you with a personalized program to suit your business needs. Medical Waste Pros Orlando can help find the right service for your hazardous pharmaceutical waste disposal.
