All the info you are receiving is fine but nothing helps with controlled
substances.that's where the real problem is.

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.
