From the EPA:
EPA has developed a "Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Wiki" as a platform to facilitate the sharing of expertise among the healthcare industry and other stakeholders to help make accurate hazardous waste determinations for waste pharmaceuticals and increase compliance with hazardous waste regulations among the healthcare community.
In addition to information about which pharmaceuticals are hazardous waste, the Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Wiki will help users find guidance documents, state-specific information, manufacturer's information, and more. We encourage all healthcare stakeholders to share their expertise, and state-specific approaches in making hazardous waste determinations for pharmaceuticals.
The Hazardous Waste Pharmaceutical Wiki can be viewed by anyone at: http://hwpharms.wikispaces.com (no registration is necessary to view)
Experts who wish to contribute or edit content for the Wiki can register by sending an e-mail request to HWPharmsWiki@epa.gov. Please use a professional email address, not a personal email address, when contacting EPA to request access to the Wiki. Your email address will not be made public.
Please help us spread the word by forwarding this email to other interested parties.
