In their email, the EPA notes that this is the federal position. States authorized to manage their own RCRA programs can take a more stringent stance. PharmEcology advises healthcare facilities to contact their state regulators before they change their operating procedures.
PharmEcology has updated the PharmE® Waste Wizard to indicate these products should be disposed of as non-hazardous controlled waste. We have also enhanced the Wizard results to include a message indicating phentermine salts may be considered hazardous by your state.
You can review the the full text of the EPA's email at the EPA's Email on Phentermine Salts.
