Environmental regulatory agencies have a renewed focus on the proper disposal of pharmaceutical waste. Recent scientific studies have also suggested that the effect that pharmaceutical products have on our environment have become a top concern for consumers. EQ understands the impact that these factors have on our customers in the Pharmaceutical Industry and have created comprehensive service solutions in order to ensure they stay compliance.
EQ has the unique ability to handle your non-hazardous, hazardous and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Schedule II-IV Controlled Substance pharmaceutical waste streams. EQ’s Detroit facility is one of the few RCRA permitted DEA registered reverse distribution pharmaceutical waste handlers in the industry.
Non-hazardous and hazardous pharmaceutical waste disposal can easily be managed through EQ’s Segregated Waste Program. Containers of pharmaceutical waste can be picked up at the same time that general hazardous material waste is picked up. We can classify your pharmaceutical waste utilizing our expertise and technology in the same way as hazardous material waste classification.
DEA Schedule II-V Controlled Substance waste can simply be managed through our Sustainable Solutions Pack Back Program as well as a pick-up program, in full compliance with regulatory requirements. EQ Pack Back boxes can be shipped through common carrier to your location for DEA Schedule II-V Controlled Substance waste collection. When full and proper documentation is completed, you simply send the Pack Back box back to our DEA registered facility for proper handling and disposal. Because of our unique RCRA permitted Reverse Distribution capability, EQ can properly manage DEA Schedule II-V Controlled Substance waste that is also hazardous. We can implement a pick-up program by EQ truck for these RCRA hazardous waste DEA Schedule II-V Controlled Substances.
Most importantly, this entire program is done in full compliance with documenting, shipping, handling and tracking federal and state regulatory requirements.
