Waste Services for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Highly competitive pharmaceutical manufacturing companies count on environmental suppliers for providing cost effective waste services while maintaining strict compliance with environmental and safety regulations. As the leading supplier of environmental services in North America with almost a thousand collection operations, transfer stations, and disposal facilities, Waste Management has the equipment, facilities, and expertise to manage and transport the pharmaceutical industry’s hazardous, industrial, and commercial residuals responsibly and reliably. At the same time, environmental sustainability is at the forefront of every successful discarded materials handling program. Pharmaceutical manufacturers strive to reduce or eliminate waste entirely by reusing or reducing residuals in their processes. By doing so, manufacturers lower cost and achieve their sustainability objectives.

This is another area where we excel at Waste Management. As sustainability experts, we offer real world guidance and advise to guide pharmaceutical facilities for reducing waste handling costs and improving efficiencies. Our unique blend of subject matter expertise coupled with direct access to our second to none asset recycling, disposal, and transportation resources allows Waste Management to design zero waste and waste reduction plans specific for the needs of our pharmaceutical customers. From process residuals to byproducts, off- spec production to returned medications and products, Waste Management can handle all the recycling or disposal needs of the pharmaceutical industry. And, we offer the industry’s strongest indemnification program. Waste Management does indeed provide a total environmental prescription package for the pharmaceutical industry.
