What is pharmaceutical waste disposal?

Pharmaceutical waste includes drugs, vaccines, and other pharmaceutical materials that are unused, expired, or contaminated, some of which can be hazardous. Regulations require that pharmaceutical waste be disposed of in a specific manner, separate from other medical waste and regular garbage.

Why is pharmaceutical waste disposal important?

Because of the potential risks should these materials be disposed of improperly, there are regulations in place requiring the careful disposal of pharmaceutical waste. If a medical practice is found to be in violation of these regulations, they can face fines and other consequences that would be detrimental to their business.
