More healthcare facilities choose Daniels for customer-focused, cost-effective and ultra-safe disposal of controlled substances. 

Daniels’ affordable and intelligent controlled substance disposal services ensure the correct quantity, size and type of waste management containers are utilized and available to every facility.

What is a controlled substance?

Hazardous pharmaceuticals and prescription medications scheduled by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are considered controlled substances. 

These substances are categorized into different schedules. Schedule V narcotics are the least likely to be abused, whereas Schedule I narcotics have a greater potential for causing physical or psychological dependence. 

No matter how these drugs are categorized, they all require specialized containment that complies with the disposal requirements of controlled substance waste streams.

The Rx Destroyer™: Streamlining Controlled Substance Waste Disposal 

The Rx Destroyer™ range showcases a variety of fast-acting chemical destruction solvents. These solutions satisfy the DEA’s non-retrievable standard for controlled substance waste disposal. 

Daniels is a proud advocate and distributor of these devices. We make the witness wasting of partially-used medication safe, affordable and convenient. Rx Destroyer™ products also present an environmentally friendly way to dispose of controlled substances. 

These waste management solutions contain activated carbon, which dissolves, absorbs and neutralizes the active ingredients of each controlled substance. Once the partially-used medication is witness-wasted, the waste is no longer DEA regulated.
