Your office should have different systems in place for disposing of different kinds of waste. Medical waste, for example, may need to be picked up at a more regular frequency than pharmaceutical waste, which requires its own containment system.
Mishandling of medical and/or pharmaceutical waste can result in very hefty fines. Not only that, it can create a dangerous environment for your employees and your own community, putting everyone at risk. If you need help creating a management plan for your specific business, WasteX can help.

“Pharmaceutical waste,” sometimes known colloquially as “Rx Waste” includes a variety of materials and medications. Both expired and unused medications, whether they have been exposed to a patient or not, also fall under the umbrella of controlled pharmaceutical waste. These materials must be specially treated to neutralize their ingredients and prevent hazardous exposure.
