How It Works

Patients and consumers bring in their unwanted or expired controlled and non-controlled medications to the pharmacist, who then inserts them into the TakeAway Environmental Return System (which should be kept in a secure location or behind the counter). When the box is full, the pharmacist simply seals it for shipment to the Sharps Compliance treatment facility and schedules a pickup with UPS. The box is prepaid and pre-addressed.

The TakeAway Environmental Return System envelope allows patients to dispose of their unwanted controlled substance medications from home.  The controlled medications are placed into the envelope, which is then sealed and mailed directly to the Sharps Compliance treatment facility. The envelopes are prepaid and pre-addressed.
