Personalized Programs for Responsible Sharps Disposal
As a healthcare organization, managing your pharmaceutical waste stream can be a headache. The experts at Waste Medic will analyze your waste stream in order to guarantee it is segregated and disposed of in a compliant, efficient, and cost effective manner.
Pharmaceutical waste generated by various types of medical facilities can be a difficult waste stream to manage. Not only does your facility need to comply with all applicable hazardous and solid waste regulations, they must also comply with any overlapping regulations from the Department of Health, the Board of Pharmacy, the Department of Transportation, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Local Publicly Owned Water Treatment Facilities. Partner with Waste Medic to feel confident that your pharmaceutical disposal needs are fully compliant with all current regulations. On November 28, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the new Resource Conservation & Recovery Act (RCRA) requirements governing hazardous waste generators in the Federal Register.
