Starting this week, Wisconsin pharmacies are giving their customers a unified message about options for pharmaceutical waste reduction and disposal.

The Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin (PSW), whose membership includes nearly all pharmacies in the state, distributed a flier for its members to place on their counters or to insert in bags with prescription medications.  PSW encouraged pharmacists to inform their patients about nearby disposal locations and to consider volunteering their time at medication collection sites.

Development of the flier was a group effort.  The Wisconsin Pharmaceutical Waste Working Group drafted the wording, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and PSW gave permission to use their logos, PSW's graphic artist designed the flier, and PSW distributed it in its weekly email to members.
