Pharmaceutical Waste

SUEZ can assist hospitals, pharmacies, doctor surgeries, veterinary practices, aged care, and other facilities, to collect and correctly dispose of their pharmaceutical waste.

What is pharmaceutical waste?

Pharmaceutical waste is drugs, remedies or medication, excluding cytotoxins, that have either expired or are no longer required by patients or hospital departments. Pharmaceutical waste also includes waste materials or substances generated during the manufacture and administration of pharmaceuticals. (Ref: Biohazard Waste Industry Code of Practice – BWI 2010).

Collection

All pharmaceutical waste collected by SUEZ is incinerated as required by law.

Containers to suit your needs

SUEZ can provide various sized clinical waste containers for the collection of pharmaceutical waste. Our collection containers for pharmaceutical waste range from 20 litre pails and 55 litre clinical boxes (with liner), to larger 120 litre and 240 litre containers.
