I recently asked EPA HQs just about the same question, Candace,
And, the below is what I got in return. I haven't had the time to "split the atoms" and glean anything from their hotlinked spreadsheet or report, but this is all I have at the moment.
The USGS might have even more (at a cost).

Subject: [Pharmwaste] New Alternative Pharm Treatment Options?
I am interested in any pharmaceutical treatment methods other than landfills and incinerators that would render the pharmaceuticals inert. Any approved chemical or other type treatment out there? Looking for something innovative to treat household take back pharmaceuticals. It wouldn't have to treat every type of pharmaceutical, maybe even a group such as antibiotics. I know it is a long shot but if anyone has any ideas, please contact me directly.
