Sure, St. Patty’s Day has passed, but we’re still thinking green when it comes to environmentally safe drug disposal.
For example, Rx Destroyer offers hospitals, clinics and surgery centers a means of disposing of unused or expired drugs that conforms to the DEA’s latest standards. This eco-friendly medicine disposal system chemically renders tablets, capsules, patches, ointments and liquids irretrievable in just seconds. And because Rx Destroyer is completely portable it can easily be stored in close proximity to the drugs themselves, making it the perfect tool to mitigate drug diversion.
Simply pour all medicine into the container, recap and shake. The Rx Destroyer medicine disposal system is reusable until maximum tablet count is reached (see product links for maximum tablet counts). It’s available in 16 oz., 1-gallon and 2.5-gallon containers.
Looking for a smaller drug disposal option instead? Deterra Drug Disposal System, designed with an activated carbon formula, renders prescription drugs inert when mixed with water. It’s ideal for narcotics, antibiotics and hormone therapies and it reduces the environmental impact of drug disposal, earning approval from both the EPA and the DEA.
Deterra is available as a biodegradable pouch in small, medium or large, or as a bucket, depending on the volume of drugs being disposed. It accepts tablets, capsules, liquids, creams and transdermal patches. Just add waste medication to the pouch or bucket, fill with tap water, seal and throw the container in the trash. Deactivation begins as soon as water is added to the pouch.
