Pharmaceutical Waste Collection is Serious Business

Does your facility have an effective method of disposing of pharmaceutical waste?

When it comes to your pharmaceutical waste collection, you need a company that pays attention to detail. The strict regulations and specific requirements of this area led us to create an entire division dedicated to the needs of Life Science companies. You can rely on AEG Environmental for help in managing and disposing of your pharmaceutical waste.

Safely Dispose of Pharmaceutical Waste

It has been estimated that nearly 1 in 7 Americans is affected by pharmaceutical contamination of their drinking water. Often this stems from poor disposal practice or insufficient knowledge of the best practice. Healthcare facilities might incorrectly handle pharmaceutical waste by flushing it down the toilet or placing it in the red bag medical waste. These poor practices expose the local water supply to the potential for contamination either directly through contact or indirectly through the transfer of these hazards to other waste in a landfill.  The EPA and state agencies have drafted regulations and guidelines which companies must follow in order to safely dispose of their pharmaceutical waste.  AEG Environmental understands the law and can help your facility properly dispose of your waste.
