Pharmaceutical Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal in Washington Defined

Most pharmaceuticals have high concentrations to help the people who take them. But these high concentrations make it difficult for the material to decompose, which makes large-scale improper disposal of these materials a threat to the environment.

Expired pharmaceuticals and pharmaceuticals waste in general are both regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Health Department. It is critical to manage pharmaceutical waste properly to protect the environment and keep these items out of the wrong hands.

Is my Pharmaceutical Waste Hazardous?

For a pharmaceutical waste to be considered hazardous it must meet a few specific requirements:

  • The active ingredient is listed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as a hazardous waste
  • It is regulated by your state environmental agency
  • It contains ingredient(s) that produce characteristics of hazardous waste (ignitable, corrosive, reactive/explosive, or toxic/radioactive)


If your pharmaceuticals meet one or more of the above requirements, they need to be treated as hazardous waste first and foremost. Medical Waste Pros Washington DC will connect you to a safe, capable hazardous waste services provider who will put together a customized quote for services based on your volume of waste.
