Pharmaceutical Waste

Proven can comprehensively handle all your pharmaceutical waste needs.

How is pharmaceutical waste defined?

Pharmaceutical waste is defined as any chemical or biological product medicine that is intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, care, treatment, or prevention of disease or injury of a human or other animal.

Aside from Federal regulations, states also employ additional regulations regarding chemotherapy waste, infectious waste, and sharps container disposal. Management of pharmaceutical hazardous waste is probably the most difficult waste stream to manage, but at Proven we can help with this.

Classifications of Pharmaceutical Waste

Pharmaceutical waste is categorized under 4 categories:
 

  • RCRA Hazardous Pharmaceuticals
  • Non-Regulated Pharmaceuticals
  • Non-Hazardous Pharmaceuticals
  • DEA Controlled Pharmaceuticals

Before 2015, subtitle C of the RCRA established guidelines regarding hazardous waste disposal and management regulations. These regulations include generation, transportation, storage, treatment, and disposal.

However, specific focus on management of hazardous waste from pharmacies, hospitals, and reverse distributors were lacking. But fear not, the EPA recently proposed a new rule: 40 CFR Part 266, subpart P, regarding standards for the management of specific hazardous wastes and hazardous waste disposal that includes pharmacy regulations for any generator producing potentially hazardous pharmaceutical waste. Such facilities will meet requirements for specific classes of hazardous waste generators (found in 40 CFR Part 262).

Standards of the EPA guidelines define various types of pharmaceutical waste. For example, a pharmacy may have thousands of formulary drugs, some which are deemed hazardous waste when disposed of and others that contain pharmaceutical ingredients defined as “acute” hazardous wastes, (some of which may be regulated even in small amounts).

It is all very specific—but Proven is here to help your business.

Our partners have in-house hazardous waste program managers that assist with compliance.
Our partners can also provide a formulary characterization service to correctly identify disposal, transport, and treatment requirements for each medication or pharmaceutical.

EPA regulations implemented for specific management of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals contain certain stipulations such as:

  • Currently, non-hazardous / non-regulated pharmaceuticals are not required to be transported as hazardous waste.
  • A uniform hazardous waste manifest is required to ship hazardous pharmaceuticals and they must be sent to a RCRA permitted facility.

Proven and its preferred partners meet these stipulations, we classify even non-hazardous wastes as hazardous to safeguard and reduce risk for our clients.
