Hazards of Incorrect Storage of Pharmaceutical Waste

The use of pharmaceutical compounds releases hazardous substances into waterways and the soil. The presence of antibiotics and cytostatics has been registered in waterways, and even drinking water. Household medicines used to be burned in boilers or thrown into sewers and landfills, leading to large-scale pollution.

Serbia is thought to hold large amounts of such waste requiring neutralization, creating a strong need for pharmaceutical waste management services. The Miteco Company alone disposes of 150t of pharmaceutical waste each year. Pharmaceutical waste management is currently regulated by a number of national and international environmental, healthcare and occupational health and safety regulations.

Waste incineration is an efficient way to neutralize pharmaceutical and medical waste. Controlled incineration is performed in dedicated plants, limiting the emissions of pollutants into air, water and soil to values established by regulations. At this time our country does not have a waste incineration plant and this type of waste is exported.

The Rulebook on medical waste management is available at:
