Title:
WASTE DISPOSAL SYSTEM AND WASTE RECEIVER FOR RECEIVING AND DISPOSING OF PHARMACEUTICAL WASTE MATERIAL
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/006346
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
A waste disposal system with a waste receiver for receiving pharmaceutical waste material. A diverter may include a solid receiver guide to direct solid phase pharmaceutical waste material to a solid waste volume, and a liquid receiver guide adapted to direct liquid phase pharmaceutical waste material to a liquid waste volume substantially separate from the solid waste volume. A pushing member may move the solid phase pharmaceutical waste material through the solid receiver guide, and a funnel member with resiliently deflectable sections may facilitate positioning of a pill prior to scoring with a cutting element. The receiver body may define a lock passageway for receiving a locking assembly secured to a fixed surface. The lock assembly may include a decoupling member and cooperate with a cap retention feature to secure a cover to a front of the waste receiver. Systems and methods for a self-contained solidification process are also disclosed.
