How do I categorize which pharmaceuticals are hazardous?

Approximately 5% of the average drug inventory is considered hazardous waste by the EPA. These drugs must be handled, managed, transported and disposed of as hazardous waste, and should always be disposed in an approved hazardous waste container. . Daniels Health Pharmaceutical Characterization Portal provides the tools necessary for your facility to be compliant with the EPA and DOT.
