In Iowa, there is a repository program that accepts medications of this
nature.  The information for the repository (which is administered by
the Iowa Prescription Drug Corporation) is www.iowapdc.org


I'm not sure if they'd be able to accept from an out of state provider,
but you may be interested in their program.

Subject: [Pharmwaste] Donation of unused medications


Does anyone have a good resource for information on the donation of
unused medicines or information that basically prohibits this?  I have a
pharmacist who supplies meds to long term care facilities in blister
packs and is interested in donating unused portions.  Also, having
recently conducted a take-back program, we collected numerous items from
the public that were still factory-sealed.  Thank you.
