Sept 11 - Pharmaceutical Disposal Bill Heads to Governor

SB 966, which establishes one of the nation's first state-wide pharmaceutical disposal pilot projects, passed out of a Senate concurrence vote yesterday and now heads to the Governor's desk.

Currently there are few safe and convenient ways for consumers to dispose of unused prescription drugs. SB 966 will give California consumers the opportunity to dispose of their unused and expired medications in an environmentally responsible manner by developing model, free, in-store disposal programs.
