Stericycle’s CsRx® Controlled Substance Waste Service is designed to safely and compliantly prevent diversion when disposing of controlled substance waste.
*Only non-controlled drugs and schedule II, III, IV and V controlled substances can be accepted in CsRx containers. CsRx Service is for controlled substances that have been dispensed to a patient at the registrant's location and need to be wasted at that location. CsRx is for controlled substance wastage only. It is not for the disposal of controlled substances brought in by patients or items that would be considered part of a facility’s inventory.
