Chemotherapy injections Waste Disposer
Bulk Chemo (The Black Container) : Bulk chemotherapy waste should be contained in RCRA containers that are DOT approved to transport this type of hazardous material (often black) and labeled as hazardous pharmaceutical waste with the correct DOT hazard class. They must be transported through hazardous waste pickup by an EPA-permitted transporter and properly managed as hazardous waste to an EPA permitted and authorized treatment facility. Sharps provides services for the compliant transport and disposal of bulk chemo and other hazardous pharmaceutical waste. Proper waste segregation is key to increasing compliance for your facility while decreasing exposure to employees and the environment. To increase proper segregation inour facility, train employees that chemotherapy waste must never be placed in red bags, sharps containers, or regular trash; and that they instead belong in labeled, color-coded containers for this specific waste.
