VA Pharmacy Waste Program

The Veterans Administration (VA) contracted with W&M Environmental through it's GSA Schedule Contract to review the Pharmacy Waste Program of the Dallas VA Hospital. Pharmacy waste is a growing problem in the US and proactive organizations, such as the VA, have begun to implement programs to eliminate improper disposal of hazardous pharmaceuticals. W&M reviewed the current plans and processes and developed an implementation plan that meets the national VA and EPA directives, while at the same time saving the Dallas VA hospital a significant amount of money in disposal costs.
