[Pharmwaste] Take-back location search engines

Do you happen to know which of the national search engines below:

     *   Are the most inclusive?
     *   Most up-to-date?
     *   Have sites not included in other engines?

The DEA collector site should have every non-law enforcement location that accepts controlled substances.



The National Community Pharmacists Association search engine includes (at least some) pharmacies that don't accept controlled substances.



Do you know of any additional search engines?



Can you estimate the practicality (technical, permissions, and cost) of creating a search engine that would include enough of these data bases that all sites would be included?



Thanks!



Ed
