RxCarbon Poly

Protect surfaces for USP <800> compliance

RxCarbon Poly is for you.

RxCarbon Poly prevents hazardous drug surface contamination by sequestering and adsorbing hazardous drugs with activated carbon. Use RxCarbon Poly to reduce hazardous drug exposure risks associated with surface contamination, and as a wipe for spills.

Protect your employees, patients, and the environment.

Peace of Mind

Adopt a policy of squirting excess controlled substances on an RxCarbon Pad to eliminate the problem of nefarious diversion. Place RxCarbon Pad on surface or in a regulated waste container in every room controlled substances are administered.

RxCarbon Pad Large and Small

Eliminate Controlled Substance Diversion

RxCarbon Pad sequesters and aDsorbs controlled substances with layers of our proprietary RP718 activated carbon.

EPA & DEA Compliant

“In support of DEA’s guidance, EPA strongly recommends that any container that is used to collect pharmaceutical wastage that will include DEA controlled substances contain some sort of absorbent in order to bind or chemically alter the contents and thus deter the diversion of the collection container for controlled substance recovery.”
From EPA Final Rule: Pre-Publication of Management Standards for Hazardous WastePharmaceuticals, page 310.

In the 2022 EPA sponsored study, titled A 10-Step Blueprint for Managing Pharmaceutical Waste in US Healthcare Facilities, (PDF available at it states if a syringe is not emptied by administering its contents, then the unadministered medication may also be emptied onto a carbon sequestration pad in the appropriate pharmaceutical waste container. (Study available at

EPA logo

Comply with EPA new regulations banning drain disposal of hazardous drugs and suggested banning of sewer disposal of all drugs and comply with USP <800> protecting against hazardous drug contamination and exposure.

Keep Doing It

Regardless of which pharmaceutical disposal device or option you are currently using, you can ensure that all controlled substances are deactivated and sequestered, even if nurses and doctors choose to squirt them into the most available container.


When it comes to pharma waste disposal, the ‘dirty little secret’ is: healthcare practitioners already squirt excess pharma waste into sharps containers. Why? Because it’s logical, it makes sense, it’s safer and it’s intuitive.

About Us

Waste & Compliance Management Inc. (WCM) has been in business since 2003. We manufacture products that make regulated waste compliance, easy and inexpensive. We started with 3 products and have organically grown to about a dozen different products under the WasteWise® brand. We saw the problem of nefarious diversion of narcotic waste and surface contamination by hazardous oncology liquids, and felt that developing a product to solve these problems was a natural extension of our product line. This led to the development of RxCarbon; an inexpensive and common sense solution to USP <800>, OSHA, EPA and DEA compliance.

The RxCarbon Story

We wanted a product to eliminate nefarious diversion of narcotics. We chose a proven method of deactivating narcotics and hazardous pharmacology, we just wanted to use it in a more sensible way than it was currently being used i.e. a central disposal location using a separate container. We didn’t want a ‘me too’ product. We were not going to settle for anything less than a unique product that was easy to use, inexpensive, compliant, intuitive and utilized containers already being used for regulated waste… READ MORE
