Gastonia, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/31/2018 -- The opioid crisis in America has reached an unprecedented level, indicating that the importance surrounding proper disposal of controlled and non-controlled substances has never been higher. With the intention of creating a safe and secure way to collect and destroy expired, unused, and unwanted medications, Assured Waste Solutions is offering a MedDrop program to DEA registered-authorized collectors.

DEA authorization is available to a number of different facilities nationwide. These include pharmacies, law enforcement facilities, hospitals with an on-site pharmacy, and narcotic treatment centers. Additionally, there is the potential for long-term care facilities such as residential medical centers to become authorized with proper sponsorship from an off-site pharmacy. Registering to become a DEA Authorized Collector is a relatively simple process that can be done at no cost to the registrant, making MedDrop Box Collection Receptacles both convenient and beneficial to have available on-site.

MedDrop boxes from Assured Waste Solutions are securely designed receptacles which ensure a safe option for disposal and destruction of unused, unwanted, expired, or defective drugs. Liquid medications such as cough medicines are also accepted, provided that they are tightly capped or sealed upon disposal.

Communities nationwide have begun to recognize the advantages of safe disposal methods such as MedDrop boxes. These receptacles are helping to ensure that children are protected from finding old or expired medications that could cause serious bodily harm. Additionally, MedDrop boxes assist in curbing access to addictive substances that contribute to the ongoing opioid crisis in America. They have also become a resource to help alleviate environmental concerns, ensuring that substances are securely discarded while preventing water contamination and other hazards that result from improper disposal in waste and water streams.

MedDrop boxes are making a positive and lasting impact on communities nationwide by providing a safe and secure way to dispose of unwanted drugs. To find out more on how to join the fight against the opioid epidemic, inquire directly by visiting Assured Waste Solutions online at
