To All, The reason most Rx-Waste collection programs do not collect liquids is because collection of liquid waste of any type  has much stricter regulations (State and Federal) in regards to collection, shipping via common carrier, freight shipping and destruction.
Collection of liquid
Rx-Waste included in collection programs and encouraged as liquid waste is a large percentage of the potential Rx-waste stream.
The Yellow Jug Old Drugs Program does collect liquid Rx-Waste.
The liquid is absorbed by the gel we use in our jugs turning the liquid waste into a non-lquid
gel safe for collection and transporting as a solid waste.
The gel also dissolves pills making the pills non-retrievable which is an important consideration when collecting controlled substances. Rendering collected controlled substances non -retrievable provides an additional layer of
security for the pharmacy, the public, the transporters and destruction facilities
