POLICE INITIATIVE  (Chief Goldstein) 

Medication Disposal Bags

Deterra Drug Deactivation System, made by Minnetonka based Verde Technologies.  Pills, liquids, or patches can be dropped in the bag and mixed with water.  Then a carbon based chemical inside turns it into a harmless solution.  The bag is also biodegradable.

  • Reduce drug abuse or misuse - Promotes leadership by deactivating drugs in an environmentally friendly way and also reduces the opportunity for abuse or misuse.  Studies show abuse of medications has quadrupled over the past ten years, and is now responsible for more drug related deaths than all other illegal street drugs combined.
  • Lessens environmental impact of drugs - the second leading cause of medications in the water supply is due to drugs being flushed or improperly discarded.
  • Cost effective - Institutions that utilize Deterra can save substantially on the cost of medical waste.


Request - $3,500 for 900 bags
