Complete Code Compliance

One of the most challenging aspects of hazardous waste management in the pharmaceutical industry is meeting the standards set forth by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). This law was put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to function as a resource for the proper management of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. A program was mandated by Congress to carry out the inspection and allow the EPA to serve as the agency for conducting all regulations and requirements

Meeting RCRA laws and regulations is vital to ensure your operation is both safe and sustainable. Hiring on a hazardous waste disposal company can enable you to satisfy all of these codes without the stress or labor required to configure a successful program on your own. HTS Environmental Services is available to deliver code compliance solutions that provide lasting results.

Correct Disposal Methods

Pharmaceutical facilities may produce a large amount of hazardous waste, all of which must be disposed of in a very precise manner to minimize the risk for employees and the environment. Your facility will need to implement effective programs to care for any hazardous wastes defined by RCRA, including F-, K-,  P-, and U-listed drugs.

Dealing with various waste products or preparing for the production of new products makes it vital for companies in the pharmaceutical industry to create an effective program, relying on proven methods and equipment for a safe and efficient outcome.

Management of Programs and Training

Creating a knowledgeable program that teaches employees about the dangers and demands of hazardous waste disposal can help to ensure compliance is always upheld. Training initiatives can be deployed to keep your staff up to date on proper practices and what to look for. Regular meetings can efficiently address important hazards before they become a problem.

It will also be important to create a program that properly separates different classifications of hazardous waste before disposal. Companies like HTS Environmental Services can provide the right direction and tools, including containers, to provide complete compliance at every level of your business.
