Over time, pharmaceutical waste builds up. Whether it's due to recalls, substance expirations or other undesirable qualities, the problem remains the same--it needs somewhere to go. We offer easy, affordable options starting at just $99 with no contracts or hidden fees.
If you are a healthcare practitioner or DEA registrant, that "place to go" is to a registered Reverse Distributor.
Reverse Distributors ensure the secure destruction of controlled (Schedule II-V) and non-controlled (Rx and OTC) pharmaceutical waste to prevent such substances from reentering a community or contaminating the environment, so choosing one with the right experience and infrastructure is paramount.
Covanta Environmental Solutions can assist with our simple, cost-effective process that helps healthcare practitioners (doctors, dentists and veterinarians) and DEA-registrants comply with DEA rules and regulations.
As a nationwide DEA registered reverse distributor with over 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical waste management and destruction, we strictly follow and adhere to the regulations (Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1317) and provide our guidance so they can do the same. Our customers enjoy hassle-free solutions to small and large-scale drug disposal.
This convenient and affordable solution helps your facility stay in full compliance with DEA regulations and avoid corrective actions, fines and missteps. Whether you need to destroy a small quantity of one medication or a larger number of multiple pharmaceuticals, we'll provide the support and solution that works for you. We offer three different box sizes to choose from. There are no contracts, hidden fees or upfront payments.
Unmanaged pharmaceutical waste is under increased scrutiny by government regulators, making DEA compliance more important than ever before. Failure to comply with federal regulations when engaging in medication disposal and handling can result in fines, from $10,000 to $10 million. Reduce your risk and get the expert help your staff needs to optimize your pharmaceutical waste management.
