Prescription Drug Disposal

Prescription Drug Disposal (image)

The disposal of prescription drugs is tightly regulated and monitored by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Industries that regularly destroy these controlled substances want a vendor who can assure total DEA compliance, from pickup to incineration

Whether our customers are law enforcement or the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, Veolia can work with you to assure regulatory compliance. We will complete all necessary forms, take possession of the items to be destroyed and assure destruction is properly completed. 
 

Disposing of prescription drugs

Veolia is registered with the DEA as a Reverse Distributor, which allows us to take possession of controlled substances from DEA registrants and destroy them at our incineration facilities. From packaging and pickup to destruction, Veolia maintains control of your waste at every step of the destruction process. Although we dispose of prescription drugs, including expired drugs, returned goods and seized goods, we can safely transport and incinerate all chemicals regulated by the DEA.
