Getting straight on P-List waste regulations

OSHA Healthcare Connection, July 15, 2008

To help healthcare facilities determine state pharmaceutical waste regulations, PharmWaste Technologies, Inc., in Urbandale, IA, has published a disposal matrix for epinephrine salts and medical nitroglycerin.

The matrix shows whether states apply the EPA disposal exemption to those two normally P-listed wastes commonly found in healthcare facilities.

P-listed wastes require special disposal procedures, and the monthly volume disposed determines classification as a small or large waste generator.

The matrix is available at www.pwaste.com. Look for the link in the Informational PDF's section.
