|Description||The Washington State Department of Ecology is announcing a newly revised interim policy for pharmaceutical waste. Eligible facilities may use this policy to manage all pharmaceutical wastes, as defined by RCW 69.04.009, that are non-viable or discarded for any reason. Facilities may not use this policy for non-pharmaceutical waste, radioactive pharmaceutical waste, or anesthesia gases.
Within its enforcement discretion, Ecology will refrain from enforcing portions of the Dangerous Waste Regulations [Chapter 173-303 Washington Administrative Code (WAC)] at facilities meeting the conditions of this policy.
