FW: [Pharmwaste] Your Webinar Invitation: Join us for Universal Pharmaceutical Waste Management Guidance in Florida

Tenace, Laurie Laurie.Tenace at dep.state.fl.us
Fri Dec 30 09:47:36 EST 2011

Florida is the only state besides Michigan that has a Universal Pharmaceutical Waste Rule. There is not currently a federal UPW. This webinar will not be useful to people from other states unless you are a transporter of Florida's pharmaceutical waste. There is a limited number of lines for the Webinar. If you are interested in reading our UPW, please go here: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/pharm/ - the rule and a presentation describing it are about half way down the page. Mostly the Webinar will be to help with guidance that has been developed specific to Florida's UPW - that guidance is on that same page under "Guidance for disposal and common compliance issues."

Universal Pharmaceutical Waste Management Guidance in Florida

Join us for a Webinar on January 18


Space is limited.
Reserve your Webinar seat now at:

Pharmaceutical waste in Florida that meets the definition of hazardous waste may be managed as a "Universal Waste". The requirements can be found in 62-730.186 F.A.C. Universal Waste allows for less stringent set of management options for the generator.  Pharmaceutical waste management has been a difficult waste stream to manage because of the overlapping regulations and conflicting guidance.

This webinar will provide insight into Florida's Pharmaceutical Waste Rule and provide guidance and proper management options for the disposal of universal pharmaceutical waste.
