My family loves these! It’s a safe way to get rid of your prescription meds. I recently cleaned up our medicine cabinet and wanted to dispose of bad or outdated meds. These worked great.

Safe for Everyone. Safe for the Environment.

In addition to preventing substance misuse, proper drug disposal benefits our environment. Improperly disposed of medications are ending up in landfills and surface water where these still-potent drugs can harm the environment and contaminate our water supply.

Deterra was named the 2022 BIG Sustainability Product of the Year and received the SEAL Business Sustainability Award two years in a row in recognition of our innovative products that are “purpose-built” for a sustainable future.

We need to take steps now to prevent prescription drugs from contaminating our natural resources. Deterra is a safe and simple way to help.
