Five Layers of Protection

Healthcare facilities that need a controlled substance disposal service should look for these five protective elements:

1. Secure containers and bracket

2. One-way disposal path

3. Deactivation by activated carbon

4. A bittering additive and solidifier to further deter diversion

5. Compliant and effective disposal via incineration


The vendor that delivers all five and more is Stericycle with their CsRx offering. They offer the perfect combination of safety, protection, and value. The health facility will not require any cumbersome equipment or electrical or plumbing changes. The waste material is incinerated to mitigate risks of pharmaceutical contamination of waterways.

The DEA strongly encourages all practitioners to adhere to security controls and procedures that assure pharmaceutical wastage is not diverted. With CsRx, the facility has a solution for safely disposing of controlled substance wastage immediately after patient administration. 

This eco-conscious and compliant disposal service reduces risk and increases employee and patient protections.
