Nation's First of its Kind Consumer Medication Return Initiative Creates Momentum for Safe Drug Disposal in the U.S.
Date:5/8/2008

allows CRI staff to personally explain the process. Once residents receive their pre-paid labels, they place their old medicine in a container for delivery back to CRI. Products received by CRI will be processed, separated into appropriate waste categories and then disposed of through incineration. The entire process is free to consumers.

"This was a team effort with the whole community embracing this initiative," says Mr. Brachman. "Because of the cooperation of so many, we're able to pull it all together and secure numerous retail business partners to assist in spreading the word to the public."

As the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency begins its attempt to modify regulations that would potentially clear the way for more national and statewide drug take-back programs, the significance of this first of its kind pilot is already being established.

"The word is out and we are attracting attention and several serious inquiries for similar programs from around the country," says Ms. Hendrickson. Mr. Brachman adds, "This pilot and the buzz it is creating will only help advance consumer understanding of the issue and ease the creation of a medication return program in the future.
