New York issues guidance on proper pharmaceuticals disposal

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently released a guidance document, NYSDEC Guidance for Proper Pharmaceutical Disposal. The document is intended to help pharmacies and the public to keep unused, unwanted, or expired pharmaceuticals out of the state’s waters. The guidance was prepared in consultation with the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

As an EHS professional, it’s hard to tell if you are being paid competitively, and as an employer, it’s hard to tell if you are offering salaries that are competitive and efficient. For a Limited Time we’re offering a FREE copy of the 2017 EHS Salary Guide! Download Now

The document encourages all retail pharmacies, manufacturers, reverse distributors, distributors, narcotic treatment programs, hospitals or clinics with an on-site pharmacy to modify their existing DEA registration in order to become an authorized collector of unwanted drugs. Authorized collectors can voluntarily install and maintain collection boxes to accept unused pharmaceuticals and can provide free or low-cost mail-back programs to the public.

To become an authorized collector, DEA registrants must:

  • Modify their registrations online; and
  • Follow all DEA requirements under 21 CFR 1300 et seq.

Commercial transporters of collected pharmaceuticals may be required to obtain a 6 New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) 364 Waste Transporter Permit.
