Room 104

EHRS and OAW are hosting an event to encourage registrants to properly dispose of outdated and unwanted controlled substances. This event is open to all University employees who are current DEA registrants. The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is covering the disposal costs. EHRS and OAW staff will be onsite to answer questions and provide information on how to work with controlled substances in a compliant manner.

Instructions to participate in the event:
1. A drug inventory form must be completed electronically and submitted to EHRS. Forms must be forwarded electronically to Jim Crumley and received by 3pm on May 9th, 2022 if you wish to participate. *
2. On May 16 th, 2022, bring the items to Stellar Chance Room 104 anytime between 9:00 am & 1:00 pm. The materials will be transferred to Penn’s licensed reverse distributor, and they will be sent offsite for incineration at the conclusion of the event.
3. Copies of the transfer documents will be provided as documentation. These must be maintained in your file for a minimum of two years.
4. Note that it is no longer required to send two people to drop off your drugs.

*This event is limited to current DEA registrants who wish to dispose of outdated or unwanted controlled substances. We can only accept Schedule II-V drugs at the event. All Schedule I drugs must be handled separately.
