This book describes recommended methods for disposing of carcinogenic wastes, including compounds widely used in hospital clinics and pharmacies. In such areas, it is less likely that fume cupboards and other facilities and equipment for handling toxic hazardous chemicals are available;
hence, methods for the destruction of antineoplastic agents have been developed with the needs of the medical staff in mind. In the description of each method, a number of potential hazards have been identified. Special attention has been paid, in all the methods, to the treatment of pharmaceutical
preparations and spillage. Chemical and biological information concerning these compounds is presented in an Appendix.
