Tim, et al,
Prior to treating a hazardous waste, be sure to check with both
state and federal hazardous waste management regulations. A part
B permit (for the treatment of hazardous waste) may be required.
Generally, such permits are not something most people want due to
cost and regulatory liability.
Perhaps the size of the disposal problem could be improved
(minimize returned unused vaccines) by placing more responsibility
on the users...encourage better inventory control (purse strings
will generally work best). Communicating the problem to users
might be the first and easiest step.
Perhaps incentives can be offered to users to better control
over-ordering. After all, the disposal costs must eventually get
passed back to users one way or another. Improving delivery
response time may also help by letting users know they do not need
to stock large amounts of the material.
An improved tracking system may also encourage users to control
inventory and rotate stock. Are users returning old stock (which
may soon become outdated) and using new stock? Are the returns
coming from all users, or simply a few "problem children"?
Another approach may be to reevaluate the dating procedures.
Could shelf life be improved? What portion of shelf life is spent
prior to shipment to users? Were original shelf life numbers
determined through actual testing of samples or by estimates from
I hope some of these ideas help.
