Drug Drop-Off Box
Elastec manufactures drug drop-off boxes that can be used in conjunction with either our Drug Terminator or Mediburn for take-back programs. The boxes can be set up at locations to collect expired and unused prescription drugs so that they can safely be incinerated. Our drug drop-off boxes can be painted or wrapped with graphics to suit the needs of your location. Each box has a lockable deposit door, retrieval door for emptying, and 4 bolt anchor holes in the base. Contact us for more information.

Drug Terminator Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use this where I am located?
The Drug Terminator falls into the category of Cyclonic Barrel Burner covered by EPA Regulation 40 CFR Part 60 (Standards of Performance) exempted under section 60.2555. Always contact your regulatory authority before use.
What can I burn in the unit?
Narcotics, pharmaceuticals, paraphernalia, clothing, most evidence, documents, etc.
How much does it burn?
The Drug Terminator is rated at 50lbs/hr but has been known to burn up to 300lbs/hr depending on the type of material being destroyed.

The Drug Terminator releases some smoke when first started but this is only wood or charcoal smoke and therefore harmless. Once it reaches temperature, there should be no smoke or smell released by the unit to affect the operators or bystanders.
Is any PPE required?

40 CFR 60.2887 – What combustion units are excluded from this subpart

Your incineration unit is excluded if the unit is owned or operated by a government agency such as police, customs, agricultural inspection, or a similar agency to destroy only illegal or prohibited goods such as illegal drugs, or agricultural food products that can not be transported into the country or across State lines to prevent biocontamination.
