Clean Earth Announces that its Detroit TSDF Earns Critical Drug Distributor Accreditation
Clean Earth, a division of Harsco Corporation and a leading
provider in environmental and regulated waste management services,
announces its treatment, storage and disposal facility (TSDF) in
Detroit, MI has earned the Drug Distributor Accreditation,
previously known as Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors
Program (VAWD), from the National Association of Boards of
Pharmacy® (NABP®). The accreditation allows the facility to expand
the breadth of its reach nationwide, while confirming its
distinguished status as a responsible handler of prescription drugs
With this accreditation, Clean Earth, and its
Detroit TSDF will continue to play a pivotal role in preventing the
diversion of pharmaceutical waste and safeguarding against improper
drug disposal and the associated environmental implications.
Preventing drug diversion helps reduce the illegal sale of drugs in
the marketplace, and proper disposal prevents drugs and hormones
from leaching into drinking water and soil.
“Given the expertise required when handling
prescription drugs, we remain vigilant through the disposal and
destruction process,” said Destini Hill, Clean Earth’s new Director
of Pharmacy Compliance. “This accreditation emphasizes our ongoing
commitment to public and environmental safety and allows us to
expand our pharmaceutical waste contracts nationally.”
Clean Earth’s Detroit TSDF received and
destroyed more than 4 million pounds of prescription drugs in 2021
by rendering them non-retrievable, meaning the properties of the
drugs become indistinguishable. From there, the separated elements
are thermally destroyed, preventing reentry into the market and
adverse environmental effects.
To earn the Drug Distributor Accreditation,
Clean Earth demonstrated compliance to a comprehensive set of drug
distributor regulatory standards that ensure environmental and
public safety to a governing regulatory board. Clean Earth will
undergo an audit in 2025, to confirm it’s continually meeting
standards, to renew its accreditation.
