Prevention is about more than dispensing less; it’s about properly removing the excess supply of medications. Without doing so, these medications can be stolen, abused or leaked into our ecosystem, contaminating our soil and water.
Deterra is the only independently tested, safe and environmentally sound solution for the permanent destruction of opioids, prescription and over the counter medication. Our solution doesn’t just mask medications in a gel or liquid. The patented approach is scientifically proven to completely destroy pills, patches, liquids, creams and films.

How Deterra Works
Tear open pouch – do not remove inner pod(s). Place unused medications inside.
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 normal household trash.
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’s plant-based pouches help prevent drugs from seeping into our land and water systems, making the world safer for everyone.
