Narcotics Bureau Partners With Covanta Energy and the City of Tulsa for Safe Prescription Drug Disposal
Date:7/28/2011

ted medication. Covanta EfW facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art combustion controls and air pollution control equipment to ensure the destruction of these drugs in an environmentally sound manner, one that protects the water we depend upon day in and day out and ensures that unwanted drugs are not available for abuse."
---Matt Newman, Covanta Director, Business Management

The Covanta Energy-from-Waste facility processes all of the City of Tulsa's municipal solid waste into clean, renewable energy. At the Covanta facility, the collected medications will be combusted at high temperatures to ensure their complete destruction, unlike other methods of disposal that can contaminate water sources.

When flushed down the drain, or disposed of in landfills, medications find their way into waterways and contaminate surface waters. These drugs cannot be removed from water supplies at typical waste water treatment plants and the contaminated water can then have negative effects on aquatic organisms, fish, and other wildlife.

OBN will enter into a contract with Covanta for this free community service. The City of Tulsa is not providing any funding for this program or incurring any costs associated with the program. Tulsa spokesman Eric Lee is happy that the Energy-from-Waste facility in Tulsa can help the entire state of Oklahoma.

"We are happy that the City of Tulsa is able to help in this important effort by hosting the sustainable destruction of these collected drugs. Our predecessors showed great foresight years ago by building the Energy-from-Waste facility, thus making this partnership possible. Collaborations like this are important steps in solving the problems associated with unwanted pharmaceuticals and medication. Five locations are provided in Tulsa for citizens who want to discard any medications."
---Eric Lee, City of Tulsa Solid Waste Services Manager
