Finding the right remedy for pharmacy waste

Managing pharmacy waste not only involves having to provide solutions for storing old medicines but also for cytostatic and cytotoxic waste. Unwanted cytostatic medicines must be stored in approved single-use containers that are robust, puncture resistant and fit for purpose and have a tight-fitting lid. We are able to supply you with the right types of storage container and dispose of your cytostatic waste in certified facilities. Moreover, our portfolio of services for pharmacies also includes dismantling biological safety cabinets and disposing of contaminated materials – safely and expertly.

    We dismantle biological safety cabinets in special tents wearing full body protection. The filters are removed and placed in UN-approved containers so they can be sent for disposal. The remaining cabinet is disinfected and then recycled as well
