Controlled Substances Waste Services

Controlled substances, by definition, are the drugs that have the potential for abuse or dependence. This is a major concern for facilities and communities. Administered by the DEA, the controlled substance act (CSA) provides a close system for distributing controlled substances. As per the DEA, this system prohibits the return of controlled substances from end-users to nearly all other DEA registrants. Disposal of controlled substances by DEA registrants is carefully regulated to ensure the complete destruction of the controlled substance.

The management of hazardous waste at the pharmacy has become more important, as scrutiny of the government at the state level has increased significantly.

In addition to an increase of fines being handed out, but states are now creating and enforcing new regulations that are stricter than the federal government. The management and disposal of pharmaceuticals have now become just as regulated as the dispensing of the same products. A good medical waste disposal service should be able to assist you in keeping up with state and federal regulations alike.
