A demonstration of the Drug Terminator was performed Monday, August 17, 2015 at Elastec’s facility in Carmi, IL for Lieutenant Scott Oswald and Sergeant Kristin McLester of the Rockford Police Department. Jeremy Pretzsch, Elastec incinerator sales manager, was on hand to show the advantages of the portable incinerator. Illinois State Representative John Cabello (District 68), also a detective with the Rockford department, recently introduced House Bill 3152: EPA-Drug Destruction Device, to amend the State’s Environmental Protection Act. The bill was passed and went into effect on July 16, affording the Rockford Police Department the ability to use the Drug Terminator. The event was covered by several representatives of the media including television, radio and newspapers.
Eliminating expired or excess legal and illegal drugs by law enforcement agencies with the Drug Terminator is just one more way Elastec is working to keep our world clean.
