Albertsons' Rx Disposal Option.
Albertsons Cos. is offering an at-home, eco-friendly medication disposal service at the company's nearly 1,800 pharmacy counters. The DisposeRx packets contain a proprietary powder activated by water. Patients pour water into the medication vial with the leftover pills, add the DisposeRx powder, replace the cap and then shake the vial for 30 seconds. "DisposeRx makes at-home medication disposal for patients or their caregivers easy and convenient. In less than a minute, patients can prevent their leftover opioids from being diverted in their communities, prevent accidental poisonings in the home, and avoid polluting the water supply," said Mark Panzer, senior vice president of pharmacy, health and wellness at Albertsons Cos.
