The Safe Disposal work group focuses on issues relating to the safe storage and disposal of prescription medications with the potential for misuse, abuse, or diversion.    

The Safe Disposal work group’s goals for 2014-2015 (year 1 of the strategic plan) are to:

  • Expand take-back programs in law enforcement agencies (including developing permanent drop-off sites with law enforcement);
  • Expand take-back programs to pharmacies (pending DEA approval); and
  • Establish Colorado guidelines on flushing.

The Safe Disposal work group meets every other month (in person and by teleconference), with occasional exceptions. The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule are available on the left-hand side of this page.
