If there is one golden rule when it comes to handling medicines, drugs, or any other controlled substances, it is that you should never play fast and loose with their disposal. The consequences of casually tossing medication into a trash bin can be tragic, and the drugs could potentially find their way into the wrong hands.
Here at Square One Medical, we encourage customers to use what we consider the best pharmaceutical disposal product on the market – Rx Destroyer. It is quick, easy to use, and highly effective, and fully complies with standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Food and Drug Administration.
Rx Destroyer offers customers a practical and safe method of disposing of everything, including capsules, tablets, and liquids. It is perfect for getting rid of substances the Drug Enforcement Administration has deemed non-retrievable. The disposal methods are also extremely eco-friendly.
As a responsible pharmaceutical distributor, you should be committed to making sure that no trace exists of unwanted products. More than 250 million pounds of drugs are discarded each year, and it is essential that as many as possible are disposed of safely and properly. It is important to us that the environment is kept pristine, and that unwanted drugs do not pollute waterways and rivers.
All Rx Destroyer products are 100% natural, and available in liquid form. There is a wide variety of sizes, from 16oz bottles to one-gallon containers. So whatever needs you to have, whether you are a homeowner who needs the product occasionally, or a commercial client dealing with drug disposal on a regular basis, we can meet your requirements.
It may be that you only want to dispose of a small amount of medication or other substances. However, you may have a large quantity that needs to be destroyed. The different sizes of Rx Destroyer container allow you to choose exactly what size suits your needs. Nursing and pharmaceutical companies are among many that use the product.
The method of destruction could not be easier. The product combines a liquid dissolving agent and charged activated charcoal. You load unused or unwanted medications through a funnel into the bottle containing the solution. Shake the bottle gently, and the medications will start to dissolve on contact with the solution until they are rendered irretrievable.
Once the medications have been loaded into the bottle, it is imperative to screw the cap tight. When you have shaken and mixed the solution over the drugs, then store the bottle in a safe place. The bottle is full when the contents are within two inches from the top of the cap – and it is important not to overfill.
You can discard the bottle in your common trash bin. It is vital to follow local, state, tribal, and federal disposal regulations. A smaller bottle is popular among residential clients and will hold approximately 300 pills. At the other end of the scale, a one-gallon container will allow a company to dispose of around 3,000 pills or patches, or an additional 500 oz of liquid.
Among the items that are recommended for disposal by Rx Destroyer are pills, capsules, tablets, liquids, lozenges, transdermal patches, fentanyl lollipops, and suppositories. Certain things should never be added including antacid medications, syringes, or drugs that are known to react with one another such as sodium bicarbonate and aspirin. If you are unsure then contact us here at Square One Medical.
A few points to bear in mind when using Rx Destroyer. It is ready to use and you need no special training – you simply load the container, shake, and then discard. The active medication ingredients are neutralized by activated charcoal. Adsorption time varies depending on the contents.
