Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Arizona Defined

The original intent of pharmaceuticals is to help people in need, but in the wrong hands or when flushed down the drain, they can be dangerous. The high concentrations present in most pharmaceuticals should only be consumed by those in need.

Because of their inability to naturally decompose, both the State Health Department and the Environmental Protection Agency regulate the disposal of pharmaceuticals. Businesses should comply with these regulations to keep their communities safe.

Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous Waste?

For a pharmaceutical (or any material) to be classified at hazardous, it must meet these requirements:

  • The material is already regulated by the Arizona state environmental agency.
  • The material contains ingredient(s) that exhibit characteristics of hazardous waste as defined by RCRA: ignitable, corrosive, toxic/radioactive, or reactive/explosive.
  • The sole active ingredient in the material is listed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as a hazardous waste.


If your pharmaceuticals meet at least one of the above requirements it is considered hazardous waste and should be dispose of accordingly. Medical Waste Pros Phoenix will help you find a reputable service provider who handles both pharmaceuticals and hazardous waste so you can efficiently dispose of your waste.
