SHWEC Pharmaceuticals Resources

The Solid and Hazardous Waste Education Center's (SHWEC) mission is to enhance Wisconsin's environment and economy by providing quality education, information and technical assistance to promote the sustainable use of natural resources. PSI partnered with SHWEC to host the 2013 Pharmaceutical Waste Stewardship Summit, which convened experts from the Great Lakes region and around the country to discuss pertinent issues regarding pharmaceutical take-back programs.
