<div style="direction: ltr;font-family: Tahoma;color: #000000;font-size: 10pt;">Hi Linda,<br>
<br>
Though not directly addressing your question, you may be interested to see a list of disposal products and their claims, including the two you asked about:<br>
<br>
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HSp0xej53KO0MkZ4f950BI-Hn2Bl-fD_QF54JHr35hU/edit?usp=sharing<br>
<div><br>
It is my understanding that if RICA listed hazardous wastes are put in a disposal unit by a hospital the contents would have to be disposed of as hazardous waste unless testing showed it is no longer hazardous or they qualify as a conditionally exempt small
 quantity generator. &nbsp; <br>
<br>
I have not seen evidence that any government agency has endorsed activated carbon or bentonite clay based disposal products as acceptable in meeting the DEA non-recoverable, or any other disposal standard.&nbsp; I also have not seen evidence that any government
 agency has challenged the claims made for products using these materials.<br>
<br>
Portable incinerators have run into issues regarding their air emissions.<br>
<br>
If you receive any off-list replies addressing state approval/non-approval, please pass them on.&nbsp; Thank you.<br>

<p class="MsoNormal">Would appreciate any comments on these two drug disposal systems. I know this has come up before but now they have been in discussions with some of our NH hospitals. Wondering if any States have approved or not approved of their use and
 why. I have attached facts sheets for both.</p>
