Our Expertise Helps You with Controlled Substance Disposal Challenges and Regulations

Disposing of controlled substance waste can be problematic for both consumers and the healthcare industry. It must be performed in a manner that both prevents diversion of controlled substances and also meets DEA regulations.

The DEA regulations can be confusing and, if controlled substances disposal is not handled correctly, the risk of fines and other DEA corrective action can come into play. Stericycle has safe and secure methods for retail pharmacies and hospitals to securely dispose of controlled substance waste in a compliant manner.

It is well documented that misuse of controlled substances by patients and healthcare workers has led to a greater awareness of how these substances can be diverted. That is why choosing a method for disposal that is both DEA compliant and also prevents diversion is paramount.
