Pharmaceutical Waste in Veterinary Clinics

Rx Destroyer™ helps veterinary clinics and other institutions in the animal care industry to properly dispose of pharmaceutical waste.  Animal care facilities such as veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, livestock facilities and zoos generate obsolete, short dated or expired prescription pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter medications. Disposal of pharmaceutical waste including controlled substances, radiologic waste, chemotherapeutic, trace chemotherapeutic and hazardous medications are regulated in all healthcare facilities including animal hospitals.

We partner with animal care clinics to provide safe, effective, easy and affordable pharmaceutical waste disposal solutions which are environmentally sound.
