Non-regulated Drugs


EH&S provides blue ten (10) gallon containers for the disposal of non-regulated pharmaceutical materials. The laboratories are to utilize these containers to dispose their non-regulated pharmaceuticals. These containers are only for the collection of non-hazardous pharmaceuticals. Researchers can check the Hazardous Material Guide to determine whether or not the pharmaceutical is regulated. Biohazardous sharps and non-sharps waste may not be placed in these containers.

The university’s vendor will pick up the blue containers on an as needed basis.  EH&S must be notified in order to schedule the requested pickups.  Pickups will occur during normal business hours.  Staff must be present at facility for pickups to occur. Contact EH&S if additional bins are needed.

Pharmaceuticals that are listed as P, U, or D wastes and DEA regulated substances may not be disposed by this process. If you require assistance disposing listed pharmaceuticals or DEA regulated materials, please contact EH&S.
