Prescription Pills & Capsules

 

Aug. 16, 2011-- CVS pharmacy announced that all 7,200 of its locations now offer the Sharps Compliance Inc. medication disposal system, which allows customers to dispose unused or expired medication.

The postage-paid envelopes cost $3.99 each and allow customers to mail their unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications to Sharp Compliance's Texas facility for disposal. The system was previously in many CVS pharmacy locations, but it has now been expanded to all facilities.

Controlled substances are excluded from the program.

Since the program was launched by Sharps, the company has collected and incinerated more than 123,000 pounds of medication, most of which has been collected in the last 10 months when some pharmacies signed on to the program.

In addition to CVS, Walgreens, Kroger and Rite-Aide have teamed with the company.
