This is interesting. The system is apparently entirely managed by Stericycle. The article indicates a "technician" (i.e. Stericycle rep) will come to empty the kiosk while two people from the pharmacy site are present. It's not crystal clear, but sounds like that technician then ships the liner. The video panel is interesting with the ability to provide directions in different languages.
