Safe . Convenient . Permanent
WORKING TOGETHER TO CLOSE THE LOOP ON SAFE PRESCRIPTION DRUG DISPOSAL
Deterra is the only independently lab-tested and scientifically proven system that permanently deactivates drugs.
HOW DETERRA WORKS
- Each patented Deterra Drug Deactivation System contains a water-soluble inner pod containing MAT12 Activated Carbon.
- Pharmaceuticals are placed into the pouch and warm water is added, which helps release the activated carbon, dissolve pills, and draw the drugs out of patches.
BENEFITS OF THE DETERRA SYSTEM
- Disposes of unused or expired medications safely, easily, affordably
- Deactivates drugs permanently via a proprietary, patented technology
- Safe for landfills
Tear open pouch and place unused medications inside Deterra
Fill pouch halfway with warm water and wait 30 seconds for air to release. Some foaming may occur.
Seal pouch tightly, gently shake and dispose of in normal trash
To deactivate and dispose of used transdermal patches, attach the sticky side of the patch to a paper towel and insert into the Deterra pouch. For unused patches, remove packaging and protective liner before attaching to paper towel.
