Proper disposal of unused or unwanted medications is vital to environmental conservation and combating the prescription drug abuse epidemic.

Volume minimization makes waste disposal less costly. DispoMeds offers a unique patented system that reduces the volume of collected drugs based on their proper disposal requirements. DispoMeds can make unused drug take-back programs safer and more convenient while significantly reducing their operation cost.

The money saved in operating the drug take-back programs can then be used for, e.g., providing more take-backs, educating the public about the benefits of out-of-home drug disposal, or even providing incentives for people to bring in their unused medicines out of their homes for disposal.

VISION

To increase the number of people who participate in drug take-back programs.  To make it possible and easier for people to form a habit of not keeping or disposing of their unused, unwanted medications at home.

MISSION

To apply its proprietary technology to provide secure and convenient options for proper collection of unused or unwanted medications.
