Stakeholder Dialogue Meeting: Safe Disposal of Household Medications & Medical Sharps in Oklahoma
Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm CDT
The Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality will convene a multi-stakeholder dialogue meeting on the safe management of residential medical sharps and drug waste.
This meeting will give participants a thorough understanding of the threats to environmental and public health associated with these wastes, barriers to safe post-consumer management, and goals to keep our communities safe. We will explore, and ultimately aim to agree on, solutions for Oklahoma.
Participants will include state and local government, academia, pharmacies, reverse distributors, medical care providers, public health and environmental groups, solid waste organizations, waste haulers, waste and recycling facilities, and others.
Free parking will be available near the venue. Lunch will be provided.
