UNUSED-UNNEEDED PHARMECUTICALS PROGRAM
LAW PASSED (S-3397)
On October 10, 2010 President Obama signed the secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010.
This law amends the Controlled Substance Act and allows Public and Private entities to develop a variety of methods for collection and disposal in a secure, convienent, and responsible manner.
Currently the DEA is developing rules which are expected sometime in 2012.
However, Controled substances as a percentage of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals is very small. And, currently if you log onto the White House Drug Policy you will be directed to either flush them down the toilet, or place them in a bag of coffee grounds and through in your trash.
Currently the EPA has found the presence of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals in your drinking water systems, streams and lakes throughout the United States, and a majority of these findings are not controlled substances, such as acetaminophem, cough syrups, etc.
Fill-A-Box collection system is an alternative to flushing your unused-unneeded pharmecuticals down the toilet or throwing them in the trash.
Fill-A-Box segragates unused-unneeded pharmecuticals from the rest of your recycables.
Fill-A-Box creates a database for your address/location of the unused-unneeded pharmecuticals recycled by you.
Stat-Medicament-Disposal then uses your unused-unneeded pharmecuticals for it’s wasdte-to-energy program.
THE PUBLIC HEALTH IS PROTECTED SAFELY!
THE EASE OF USE CANNOT BE QUANTIFIED!
IMPLEMENTATION IS EASY!
PARTICIPATION INCREASES EXPONETIALLY!
And, there is a safe and secure record.
