The ELASTEC Drug Terminator drug disposal incinerator makes it easy for law enforcement agencies to dispose of confiscated illicit drugs and narcotics safely, on-site and on demand.
The controlled destruction of confiscated illicit drugs stored for evidence by law enforcement agencies is mandated by the Uniform Controlled Substances Act and is enforced by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Federal and state hazardous waste rules and regulations, enforced by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), must be followed when using a barrel burner to dispose of impounded drugs.
DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative
The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Office of Diversion Control periodically initiates a national prescription drug take-back program administered through local and state law enforcement agencies. More information on the DEA’s take-back program can be found here.
The Elastec Drug Terminator is a double-duty drug-fighting cyclonic barrel burner for law enforcement:
- To dispose of confiscated evidence drugs
- To keep illicit prescription medications off the street through sponsored community drug take-back programs.
With state and local budget cuts, some law enforcement agencies are using asset forfeiture funds to offset the costs of managing and disposing of contraband. Many departments have purchased the Elastec Drug Terminator incinerator with these funds.
