Destroy Drugs at Home in 3 Easy Steps

The patented Deterra® System deactivates prescription drugs, pills, patches, liquids, creams and films. Deterra renders them inert, unavailable for misuse and safe for the environment. In a simple 3-step process, a user deactivates the drugs by putting them in a Deterra pouch or container, adding water, shaking and throwing it away. It’s truly that simple.

Step 1 Icon

Place Medication in Pouch

Open pouch and place unused medications inside.

Step 2 Icon

Fill Halfway with Water

Fill halfway with warm water and wait 30 seconds. Foaming may occur.

Step 3 Icon

Seal, Shake & Dispose in Trash

Seal tightly, gently shake and dispose of in normal trash.

This was much easier than any other drug disposal system that I have ever used.
Environment Icon

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.
