Does anyone remember way back that someone had brought up a place in Canada (I think) that was using an enclosed compost type way of destroying drugs, as opposed to incinerating them.  It created no fumes or air pollution.  If you do I would love to get their info please...

>Is there a list of expired-pharmaceutical collection programs across the US or worldwide, or are the efforts largely unconnected?  I have academic collaborators who are interested in using data about returns to assess the impact of internet pharmacies.  Would there be legal and implementation issues in accessing anonymous data about the medicines collected?  Recommendations for how to approach collection programs would be most helpful.
