Medical Waste Services Offered in NY

Pharmaceutical Contamination in New York's Waters

In the past, both consumers and medical facilities flushed their unwanted pharmaceuticals. However, wastewater treatment plants are not capable of filtering all medications–and as a result, low levels of many medications have been found in 80% of New York's rivers and streams. Continuous exposure to low levels of medications causes behavioral and physical changes in fish and other aquatic wildlife, and can contribute to the development of drug-resistant bacteria.

To combat this, some facilities dispose of medication in their medical waste collection containers, but this is not a more environmentally friendly method. Medical waste is typically autoclaved–a process which does not treat pharmaceutical waste. It is then shredded and sent to a landfill, where the medications can leach into the groundwater.

The only truly acceptable means of pharmaceutical destruction is incineration. BioServ has addressed this with a simple, cost-effective pharmaceutical waste management program, which guarantees 100% regulatory and environmental compliance for your facility. One of our experts will help you determine what type of pharmaceutical waste you have and then set you up with a management plan that fits your needs.
