[Pharmwaste] Drug collection boxes

Deborah, The new proposed DEA regs. on Disposal for Controlled Substances have new, very
specific guidelines for "Collection Receptacles" and "Liners" for collecting Controlled Substances. Assuming these proposed rules are adopted most of the Collection Receptacles in use currently will not meet the new requirements unless modified.
See proposed DEA regs pg 49-52.

I'm aware of this because we have a "Collection Receptacle" and "Liner" in development that will meet the proposed standards but are waiting until final rules are in place and our Collection System is approved by DEA before putting them in use to ensure that our "Collection Receptacles and "Liners" do meet the new standards.

While our program works currently strictly with Pharmacies, the DEA regs for Collection Receptacles and Liners are the same for Law Enforcement.
