Lighthouse™ Drug Disposal Service
Expired medications should be destroyed.
How are you currently disposing of your clinics expired medication?
Your dental office contains medication and you will need an economical and easy disposal system upon expiration. Expired and unused prescription medications are often left lying in medicine cabinets, cupboards, and preassembled kits. This leads to potential misuse and abuse.
With HANSAmed being the sole provider and distributor of LIGHTHOUSETM across Canada, we have developed different solutions to accommodate all dental clinical medical emergency needs.
HANSAmed Limited has developed a simple and environmentally-friendly service program to benefit you, your clinic and the environment.
According to Health Canada, medications should never be thrown into the regular garbage or flushed down the toilet for environmental reasons. Due to lack of compliance of improper drug disposal, there are traces of pharmaceuticals in the environment – in the soil and in our water.
The LIGHTHOUSETM drug disposal service will provide clinics with:
- Proper environmentally friendly disposal of expired medications
- A safe and easy alternative to flushing, pitching or using the pharmacy
- Peace of mind that you can responsibly and conveniently manage your pharmaceutical waste
The LIGHTHOUSETM drug disposal service is ideal for all dental offices.
