Beginning December 1, 2011, any business selling prescription drugs to the public shall post display materials approved by the Director explaining how members of the public may safely and lawfully dispose of unused prescription drugs. The materials shall be in English, Spanish, and Chinese, and legible and easily readable by the average person. The materials shall be posted on the premises of the business in a location visible to the public and adjacent to the area where the prescription drugs are dispensed.
The Director may, in his or her discretion, authorize a business to use alternate means to comply with the requirements of subsection (a). The Director shall authorize such alternate means through the adoption of a regulation after a noticed hearing, and no business may sell prescription drugs to the public or offer to sell prescription drugs to the public using any alternate means of compliance with this Chapter unless specifically authorized to do so in advance in writing by the Director.
The City urges all persons and entities providing prescription drugs to the public for free to also participate in this program.
