There are 2 types of pharmaceutical waste: hazardous and non-hazardous. Pharmaceutical waste disposal compliance involves disposing of your pharmaceutical waste in accordance with the California Medical Waste Management Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
Non hazardous pharmaceutical waste is any unused or expired over the counter drugs or medications that are not defined as hazardous by the RCRA.
Non hazardous pharmaceutical waste is disposed of using a white and blue container which is clearly labeled "incineration only."
Hazardous pharmaceutical waste is any unused or expired over the counter drugs or medications that are defined as hazardous by the RCRA.
Hazardous waste pharmaceuticals should be disposed of using a black container specifically for hazardous waste management. Management of pharmaceutical waste that is hazardous requires the generator to obtain an EPA ID number.
