Do the drugs and the chemical then still go into the trash? Maybe I didn't search the website hard enough.

Subject: [Pharmwaste] Pharmacy receptacles for unused meds

Hello All,

I have a colleague who is asking:

“Is anyone aware of any existing pharmacy(ies) currently using receptacles at their sites to collect medications through take back efforts?”

If you are aware of any of these, would you please reply.  I think it would also be helpful to include any special conditions, like ‘are controls accepted’, sharps, etc or maybe just ‘what is prohibited’?.

Her email address is on the cc line if you would prefer to email her directly.
