Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Sacramento Defined

With most medicines containing high concentrations which tend not to degrade over time, they can be hazardous to the environment if they are disposed of improperly. The Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department regularly enforce regulations to maintain the safety of the environment from these risks.

Expired pharmaceuticals or pharmaceutical waste can be detrimental if they are carelessly disposed of in the garbage or down the sink or toilet. Once they enter the water system, they have contaminated the exposed water and can quickly spread to others.

Is My Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous Waste?

Pharmaceutical hazardous waste must meet these requirements:

  • 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 environmental agency.
