Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in San Jose Defined

Pharmaceuticals are often high in concentration, which halts the substance from degrading. This creates a tremendous danger to employees and the environment if not disposed of properly.

It is interesting to think something so harmful to the environment can be so helpful to the people who use it. The Environmental Protection Agency and your State Health Department regulate all expired pharmaceutical waste and other pharmaceutical waste to keep the community safe.

Is my Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?

In order for a pharmaceutical product to be considered hazardous, it must meet the following criteria:

  • It contains ingredient(s) that result in the pharmaceutical exhibiting characteristics of hazardous waste (ignitable, corrosive, reactive/explosive, or toxic/radioactive), which requires that it be treated as hazardous waste under RCRA.
  • The sole active ingredient in the pharmaceutical must be listed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as a hazardous waste.
  • It must already be regulated by the Illinois state environmental agency.


If your pharmaceuticals meet any of the above requirements, follow the proper disposal procedure to ensure you are disposing of it safely. No matter how much medical waste you have, we will help you find a local provider to dispose of your waste for you.
