Q&A on Waste Stream Analysis with Industry Expert, Steve Todisco

Posted by Sasha Laferte on Fri, Nov 21, 2014

Last week, we hosted a live webinar on waste stream analysis with undustry expert Steve Todisco. Here's a transcription of the live Q&A from the end of that webinar. 

Pharmaceutical waste only represents a small amount of the total waste we manage. Why should I even really care about it? What's the point of focusing on pharmaceutical waste?

Yes, that's a great question. Pharmaceutical waste does represent a very small percentage of the total waste volume. You have to understand that most of the fines in the last three to five years have been on pharmaceutical waste. It's a huge opportunity in disguise. You can take that tiny little waste stream and make sure that you're managing it as officially as possible so that your waste budgets come down. Being a regulator focus and being specifically one of the drivers of fine and citations over the last half decade, it's probably one of the biggest components of making sure that small waste stream is managed appropriately.

Think Lab Pack in Progress

The idea behind this tactic is that you’re constantly reviewing your waste shipments, refining your process and ultimately assessing containers on a container by container basis. This allows you to keep chemicals that would ordinarily be prematurely disposed of longer,  reducing purchasing and disposal costs. It also allows you to consildate, contain, and reduce prices.

In assessing, we also recommend shipping in the most appropriate size containers while using your generator status as an advantage. This could allow you to optimize the size and amount of containers for price as well as your number of pick ups.
