Pharmaceutical Waste

If you operate in the healthcare sector or pharmaceutical industry, the disposal of any pharmaceutical waste you produce is a key concern. Pharmaceutical waste is often hazardous and can have a profoundly damaging affect on the environment and public health should it be disposed of incorrectly. Therefore, it is vital that all producers of pharmaceutical waste have the requisite knowledge and infrastructure to be able to dispose of pharmaceutical waste safely in compliance with UK law.
