About Deterra Systems
Verde Environmental Technologies, Inc., maker of the Deterra Drug Deactivation and Disposal System
The Deterra System is a safe medication disposal pouch or container that can be used at home or in a clinical setting. It is the safest, most effective choice used to destroy and properly dispose of unused, unwanted and expired medications with the simple addition of tap water.
Deterra is on a mission to reduce drug abuse and negative environmental impact and is the only product available today that is scientifically proven to destroy prescription and over-the-counter medicine, including addictive opioids. Deterra helps prevent diversion, misuse and abuse because the proprietary activated carbon used renders drugs inert and non-retrievable for all practical purposes. Its plant-based packaging and non-toxic ingredients prevent harmful chemicals from entering our landfills and water supplies, making the world safer for everyone.
Developed under Federal Contract awarded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and backed by notable drug abuse prevention organizations, such as the DEA Educational Foundation, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA), Mother’s Against Prescription Drug Abuse (MAPDA) and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), among others, Deterra gives people peace of mind that the medications are gone – for good.
