National Pharmwaste List Server

Proper disposal of pharmaceutical waste is an emerging issue nationally as low-levels of various pharmaceutical compounds have been found in waterways across the country. This list server provides a national dialogue to organize, discuss and track ideas, projects, grants, and other issues. Participants are primarily from various government agencies, but others are welcome to join.

To join the List Server go to and follow the directions.
