2007 PPRC Webinar Series

PPRC is proud to announce the schedule for the 2007 Northwest P2 Webinar Series. Mark your calendars now!


Pharmaceuticals Take-back in Washington State
Cathy Buller of PPRC, other speakers TBD
Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

Hear about the exciting results of a unique year-long pilot project by Washington state governments and non-profits to provide a convenient, secure and environmentally responsible collection and disposal option for expired/unwanted household pharmaceuticals: over-the-counter, prescription and controlled medications. No such mechanism currently exists in the state. An estimated 100 pilot collection locations in retail pharmacies (Bartell's), clinical pharmacies (Group Health Cooperative) and nursing homes will collect a minimum of 1,800 kg (4,100 lbs) of material in one year.


If you are interested in participating in any of these upcoming webinars, please contact Chris Wiley at cwiley@pprc.org or at (206) 352-2050. Provide your name, organization, email address, and phone number and he will be in touch with you soon!
