Pharmaceutical and Biotech Industries

WasteSafe is licensed and permitted to provide a variety of medical waste transport and disposal services. We offer scheduled and on-call pick-up services to properly remove your medical waste, also known as red bag waste.

As with all practices, pharmaceutical practices face several laws in relation to waste disposal laws; in particular, hazardous pharmaceutical waste is a concern that is rapidly growing, and it’s important to note that while the bulk of this waste includes expired pharmaceuticals, there is more to consider.

At WasteSafe our pharmaceutical container solutions make it easy to manage and dispose of pharmaceutical waste. Improper disposal of hazardous pharmaceuticals means they will likely wind up entering our water sources or landfills, reaching the soil which is a clear environmental risk. Failing to comply with proper disposal means you could risk facing some heavy financial penalties, so it’s critical that your pharmaceutical practice understands all applicable regulations and follows each accordingly.

This disposal process relates to any pharmaceutical that a facility no longer needs.

We will never obligate clients to long-term contracts; in fact, we pride ourselves on providing immediate pricing upfront, with no surprise fees down the road. It is our priority to remain transparent with our clients about our services and costs, so you can rest assured what we estimate is what you will pay. Customizing a pharmaceutical disposal program with WasteSafe is the first step in keeping our environment and the general public, protected and safe.
