Chemotherapy Waste Disposal

Chemotherapy Waste Disposal. Chemotherapy drugs are primarily used for the treatment of various types of cancer, and occasionally, other diseases. Most chemotherapy drugs or pharmaceuticals are toxic in that they kill living cells. Some newer anti-cancer drugs work using a different approach, but most chemo medicines used in oncology centers, clinics, and hospitals are toxic. That means any waste where these drugs are present are considered hazardous waste.
