Drug disposal terminator / Drug recovery system

Drug disposal terminator

In Taiwan, 136,000 tons of drugs will be discarded every year. Just 30% of them have proper processing;the rest of them will be dumped into rivers directly without correctly processing them. This overburdens the environment and is terrible to nature.
In our survey, we found that the drugs which are sold in pharmacies and hospitals don’t have a symbol about drug disposal. They don’t know what kinds of drugs should be given to a hospital or what kinds can be thrown in a trash can. So we designed a service system to make drug disposal easy. Everyone will know the way to tell the different kinds of drugs so they can be disposed of correctly
