Sharps Compliance is committed to helping communities dispose of unused medications to combat the growing epidemic of prescription drug abuse and accidental poisonings. We are running a contest for a chance to win one of twenty MedSafe medication disposal collection receptacles along with a year’s worth of inner liners.

MedSafe is an ultimate-user unused medication collection and disposal system. This easy-to-operate system accepts controlled (Schedules II-V), non-controlled, and over-the-counter medicines. It operates under the October 2014 DEA rules and regulations.

To date, Sharps’ solutions (MedSafe and TakeAway envelopes) have facilitated the proper destruction of over 310,000 pounds of unused medications, including controlled substances. The twenty MedSafe solutions to be given away are expected to facilitate the disposal of an additional 10,000 pounds of unused medications on an annual basis.

  • Retail pharmacy,
