Abstract:

Microconstituents of concern include trace levels of pharmaceutical products that are present in wastewater and potentially can enter the environment. Proper disposal to keep these substances from entering the waste stream through source control programs is one tool to reduce the presence of compounds that may impact the environment. Source control programs for unused pharmaceutical products are reviewed with respect to organization, conduct and results. Discussion of the role of source control for unused medicines in the overall management of these discharges is provided.
