The Sharps Compliance Corp. and MedReturn LLC have created MedSafe, a system set up to dispose of unwanted and expired medications, including controlled substances.

The product consists of a collection receptacle manufactured by MedReturn with waste management handled by Sharps. The unit has a “tamper-proof, one-way drop and comes with a removable serialized and trackable inner liner for safe transportation and disposal,” the company said. The liner has a double-locked door, and inner liners returned to the Sharps Compliance disposal facility will be processed and treated via incineration, leaving the medication non-retrievable.

The 18-gallon MedSafe unit is designed for lower volume locations, such as long-term care facilities. The 38-gallon MedSafe unit is designed for collection sites with larger volumes, such as a retail pharmacy.
