The state of Iowa has executed a contract with Assured Waste Solutions, LLC. (AWS) to provide the state with DEA-compliant pharmaceutical collection receptacles.   General pharmacies (community pharmacies) interested in becoming a controlled substance collector may contact Compliance Officer Jennifer Tiffany via email at for more information or to express interest in receiving a receptacle.  Program funding will be supported by the Board of Pharmacy through its license and registration fees.  No additional costs will be incurred by the participating pharmacies.  The pharmacy will be responsible for the proper installation of the receptacle, but may consult with Board Compliance staff, as necessary.  Funding is limited. Not all pharmacies expressing interest are guaranteed to receive a receptacle.
