Improper disposal and DEA reporting of pharmaceutical controlled substances can cost healthcare facilities thousands in regulatory fines

When it comes to properly managing waste streams per regulatory requirements, healthcare facilities are constantly searching for solutions that not only protect them from regulatory infringements, but can do so without being locked into long-term contracts from waste pickup services which threaten them with large financial penalties if they decide they want out early.

This problem is exasperated when facilities are trying to find proper solutions for the disposal of DEA Controlled Substances, which involves additional cradle-to-grave tracking documentation paired with DEA-certified reverse distribution services.
