a comment concerning Catherine Zimmer's statement:
"The proposed pharmaceutical universal waste rule only covers RCRA hazardous
waste which is a mere 31 pharmaceuticals out of a host of thousands."
I don't know what list you are using but, looking at one of the hospitals
formularies that we dispose of Pharmaceutical waste from ....there are many
more items that are considered hazardous than 31. I have almost that many
separate pharmaceuticals which are considered flammable (RCRA
D001 -"Characteristic Waste")
You may want to look into the Characteristic (D-Listed ) wastes a little
closer in addition to your P and U -listed wastes.
