Pharmaceuticals: Take Back Your Meds

Pill Bottle Spilling Red

Take Back Your Meds is a group of over 270 organizations in Washington State demanding a statewide program for the safe return and disposal of unwanted medicines.  Since its early days as PH:ARM (Pharmaceutical from Households: A Return Mechanism), this ground-breaking program has created new programs and crafted new policies that continue to address the highly challenging issue of managing unwanted medications.  Full Circle, in its role as part of this highly-capable and diverse set of team members, has been a liaison to pharmaceutical manufacturers, helped develop state and federal policy, forged a local collection infrastructure, testified before the state legislature and recruited programmatic and legislative support from across  the state and across key stakeholders.
