Healthcare facilities and in-home healthcare situations such as hospice and diabetes management generate a sizable amount of medical waste, making convenient and safe medication disposal a necessity. Providing convenient and safe options for the disposal of these potentially dangerous medications and sharps where it’s needed most ensures proper disposal and protects communities.
The vast majority of people who are prescribed medications obtain them from pharmacies. Offering a safe and secure medication disposal option at the source not only increases traffic to the pharmacy but makes it simple for customers to properly dispose of their unused or unwanted medications during their regular visits.
The EPA strongly encourages law enforcement agencies to obtain cabinets for medication and sharps take backs. Providing communities with a resource to safely and securely dispose of these types of medical waste, brings awareness to the issue, preserves local law enforcement resources and keeps communities safe.
With the public health and environmental dangers of misused and improperly disposed of medications and sharps, it is vital to educate the next generation in order to solve this epidemic. By providing students with the means to dispose of medications and sharps, we can educate them and put an end to improper medication disposal.
