Streamlining Waste Management for Pharmaceutical Companies

Waste management for the pharmaceutical industry is highly complex, particularly for hazardous materials like cytotoxic waste, cytostatic waste, and pharmaceutical stock. However, as the industry looks to incorporate recycled content into packaging and better manage the potential for recycling pharmaceutical packaging, there are increasing opportunities to minimise waste and streamline waste management.

The pharma industry can achieve fuller control of its waste management needs with streamlined recycling. At LSM, we work with pharmaceutical manufacturers across the UK to better manage cardboard and plastic waste using recycling balers.

Waste Baling Solutions for Pharmaceutical Facilities

Waste sorting is already a key part of pharmaceutical waste management, as UK pharma supply chains must comply with strict legislation. However, pharmaceutical companies can go one step further and work towards waste minimisation in the industry by re-evaluating cardboard and plastic recycling waste. The build-up of cardboard across the pharmaceutical supply chain can lead to:

  • Unpredictable waste costs
  • Lost productivity to administrative tasks
  • Increased waste retrieval and landfill fees
  • Decreased storage space
  • Higher risk of accidents in storage areas

At LSM we help pharmaceutical company operations managers across the UK find recycling management solutions to suit their needs. Our cardboard and recycling waste baling solution range:

  • Comes in sizes suited for low, medium, and high-volume organisations
  • Features integrated kickers, optimal bale sizes, full bale discharge and mobility options
  • Are available as rentals for easy scaling

As innovation allows pharmaceutical companies to create less landfill waste, each part of the pharma supply chain will see its role in waste management change. Pharmaceutical manufacturers with complex supply chains will have different requirements compared to pharmacy waste disposal plans. LSM provides the pharmaceutical industry a comprehensive selection of waste balers, catering to the industry’s unique requirements. All LSM waste and recycling balers are not only available in several sizes but also on flexible rental options. Our experience finds the pharma industry typically builds their waste management programmes around four core products:
