Collecting expired pharmaceuticals and cytotoxic drugs
RECOVERING PHARMACEUTICAL WASTE
When a medicine has expired or can no longer be sold, it becomes a waste product and must be destroyed.
Every year, pharmacies, hospitals, rest homes, nursing homes and distributors must therefore employ the services of a company which collects expired or unused pharmaceuticals. S.Eco collects expired pharmaceuticals and cytotoxic drugs, classified as special and hazardous waste, carefully following the environmental procedures established by law with regard to the collection of special waste (Presidential Decree 254/03 and Legislative Decree 152/06).
All the pharmaceuticals, after being stored temporarily, are sent for incineration.
S.Eco also offers Assinde collections. Assinde is a system born from a collaboration between Farmindustria, Federfarma, ADF, Assofarm and Federfarma Servizi in order to reimburse pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies for leftover medicines.
EXPERIMENTAL MEDICINES IN CLINICAL TRIAL DRUG
We offer a special service to collect and dispose of experimental medicines in clinical trial drug.
