Chemotherapy Waste Disposal Services
Trace chemotherapy waste is defined as items that have been contaminated through contact with or have previously contained chemotherapeutic agents. In order to be considered “Trace” chemotherapeutic waste, the item or container must contain less than 3% by weight of the original quantity of the chemotherapeutic agent. These items include, but are not limited to: empty syringes, pipettes, pads, gauze, glass vials or bottles, items generated in the preparation and administration of cytotoxic / antineoplastic drugs, intravenous solution bags and attached tubing, gloves, gowns and personal protective equipment that has come into contact with chemotherapeutic agents.
Proper packaging and disposal of trace chemotherapy waste is required by State and Federal agencies. MED-FLEX offers a complete line of chemotherapy waste containers and disposal options.
