RxDisposal™ and NarcX™ Make Every Day a Take-Back Day with theOnly DEA-Compliant On-Site Option for Medication Disposal

VINEYARD, Utah (PRWEB) March 14, 2018

RxDisposal, a Utah-based start-up, has entered the medication disposal space with the only DEA compliant option for the on-site destruction of unused, unwanted and expired medications. Their patent-pending NarcX liquid solution prevents theft, misuse or tampering by immediately breaking down tablets, capsules and liquids and neutralizing the compounds in under two hours. Natural agents in NarcX induce vomiting to further prevent abuse.

Traditional medication disposal methods such as on-site collection bins are governed by expensive DEA-regulated protocols and require costly incineration. This new disposal method will save organizations up to 40-60% annually. NarcX is environmentally friendly, meaning depleted product can be disposed of in the trash or collected by any contracted waste management company.

“The traditional method entails stockpiling unused medications, making them vulnerable to abuse by addicts as well as healthcare workers and other individuals who have legitimate reasons to access to the drugs,” says RxDisposal founder, Ryan Sawicki.

Co-Founder David A. Schiller, former DEA Assistant Special Agent in Charge with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is passionate about NarcX and the impact it will have in preventing the epidemic abuse of narcotics, opioids, amphetamines and other prescription medications. According to Schiller, “Diversion of prescription drugs is killing thousands of individuals in every city in America, every year, and it has to stop. This solution will change the medication addiction landscape forever.”

RxDisposal launched its “Be Part of the Solution” campaign to create better awareness for the importance of proper and legal medication disposal and support organizations in their efforts to become compliant with DEA policy and the Code of Federal Regulations.

According to Sawicki, “NarcX fills a critical need. Organizations and individuals want to dispose of medications properly—they just need education and a convenient option. We provide that.”
