Using Deterra Drug Disposal System allows for the safe, permanent removal of medicines without the need to drive to drug disposal programs.  LEAF Council on Alcohol and Drug Addictions is providing these bags for FREE via their website.   Community Services – LEAF (leafinc.org)

By visiting LEAF’s website, you can receive up to 3 free bags per request.  Each bag or pouch will deactivate 45 pills/films, 6 patches, or 6 oz/180 mL of liquids or creams.  Once deactivated, the Deterra bag can be disposed of in your household trash.  Third-party testing proves that the proprietary activated carbon in Deterra deactivates the drugs rendering them inert and safe for the environment.
