Pharmaceutical Waste Services
A good medical waste and sharp disposal service should still dispose of non-hazardous, non-RCRA substances. As the words “non-hazardous” may be written in the title, there are state and federal laws and regulations that still apply. BioWaste provides pharmaceutical waste disposal services to clients throughout the greater Nashville and Chattanooga areas including all of Middle Tennessee.
How should non-hazardous drugs be handled, stored and disposed of?
BMPs (best management practices) strongly discourage the use of sewers and landfills for non-hazardous drugs. An organization can minimize risks by adopting BMPs. An example of a possible exception would be controlled substances due to difficulty in rendering non-recoverable under DEA regulations.
A facility must meet federal and state requirements for managing unused pharmaceuticals, which is another reason why we are a waste and sharp disposal service fully capable of handling and destroying non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste.
We place a lot of effort into making BioWaste a leader in healthcare waste management, and for that reason, we will ensure that your pharmaceutical waste disposal is in compliance with the guidelines of state and federal regulations.
