PharmaLink, Inc. ®, and American Security Cabinets have collaborated to launch the industry’s first technology driven solution for consumer prescription disposal, RxTakeBack™.


RxTakeBack™ was developed in response to the requirements set forth in the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010 and the growing need for U.S. consumers to have a compliant and logical outlet for all types of prescription disposal. RxTakeBack™ is available to be purchased by any entity that can collect pharmaceuticals according to DEA regulation. These facilities includes retail pharmacies, certain hospitals, narcotic treatment programs, and law enforcement.

RxTakeBack™ provides its users with a turn-key solution that includes, an ADA compliant collection kiosk, disposable kiosk liners, complete transportation logistics, and access to a web-based tracking and compliance system that assist users in conforming to DEA and EPA regulatory requirements. By leveraging the expertise of the project collaborators, PharmaLink and American Security Cabinets are delivering a cost effective solution that is poised to be the industry standard.

Thierry Beckers, PharmaLink President & COO, was quoted saying, “We have been monitoring the industry’s need for a responsible solution to consumer prescription disposal while at the same time looking at the compliance of facilities participating in take-back programs. With our background in technology and healthcare supply chain, we looked to improve upon other solutions the industry has produced and create a product that further reduces cost and helps facilities navigate the regulatory process. This product is closely aligned with our core values and our corporate vision; ‘To be the strongest Link in the healthcare supply chain; delivering ethical and responsible solutions to businesses and consumers.’”

Mike Pietrini, President & CEO of American Security Cabinets, noted that “I knew that PharmaLink was the right partner for us because of our mutual commitment to compliance and our dedication to quality products. The quality of our kiosks parallels the technology PharmaLink has developed for this product. Together we are positioning RxTakeBack™ to be a household name for consumer prescription disposal.”

The RxTakeBack™ prescription disposal solution is currently available for sale to eligible facilities in the United States.
