Hazardous Materials and Waste

Many pharmaceuticals can be considered hazardous waste when discarded. Pharmaceuticals are classified as hazardous due to EPA classification of hazardous ingredients or due to characteristic hazards exhibited by the material. Pharmaceuticals are not waste until a final determination of product viability is made. Once a product has been classified as non viable, that product becomes a waste and must be processed accordingly. Inherently hazardous chemicals may not be processed under the same viability standards. Chemicals that are considered EPA RCRA regulated waste must be managed as waste by the generating facility and not forwarded to the reverse distributor. In order to avoid penalties imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation, facilities should refrain from sending the following items to Pharmatech Services, Inc.:
