Deterra Deactivates Prescription and over-the-counter medications
The Deterra® Drug Deactivation and Disposal System will deactivate organic medications including opioids, fentanyl, most illicit drugs and vape fluid.
However, Deterra will not adsorb biologics, such as vaccines and immunotherapeutics which are typically administered in a healthcare setting. Additionally, inorganic medications—such as antacids, lithium, and iron supplements—will not be adsorbed. Deterra will not deactivate leaf marijuana.
It is impossible to know all forms and potency of illicit drugs. Follow state and local guidelines on safe medication disposal where applicable.
If your medication has specific disposal instructions, please follow the directions as given. Consult authorities or your pharmacist for more specific questions.
