Q. How does Element MDS work?
A. Element MDS works by mixing medications (liquid, solid and even controlled substances) with an organic, plant-based powder and simple tap water in a tamper-resistant container. Shaking this mixture turns it into an undesirable, gel-like substance that is securely contained and ready for disposal in a common trash receptacle.
Q. What do you do with the Element MDS kit after you use it?
A. The entire tamper-resistant container is simply thrown away in a common household trash receptacle.
Q. Can Element MDS be used for controlled substances?
A. Yes. Unlike mail-in kits, Element MDS can accept controlled substances as well as most other medications.
Q. What sizes do you offer?
A. Element MDS is offered in a 17oz size.
Q. How much does Element MDS cost?
A. Pricing starts as $5.60 per kit. Volume discounts are available. Call for more information.
Q. Can Element MDS be used with patches?
A. When a patch is mixed with the Element MDS Powder Packet and water, it is bathed in the gel-like substance. This does not make the patch unusable, but it certainly makes it less desirable. What’s more, the tamper-resistant container makes any contents extremely difficult to access.
Q. Can I put my own logo on the Element MDS box?
A. Yes. With a minimum order, we can place your logo on the box to promote the efforts of your organization.
Q. Why is Element MDS the preferred method for proper medication disposal?
A. Several reasons:

Proper disposal of expired or unused medications is a growing problem nationwide. Flushing medications in the toilet delivers them to the public water supply. Throwing away in the garbage, even when concealed by kitty litter or coffee grounds in a plastic bag, can make them available to unintended users. Community drug take-back events are infrequent and may not be accessible by some residents.
Element MDS was created to help eliminate these problems – with a method that’s easy, safe and affordable.

Hospice organizations enjoy numerous benefits with Element MDS. The kits are convenient to transport in nurses’ vehicles and look professional in a patient’s home. The process is fast and easy for nurses, giving them more time to care for patients or tend to other activities. Administrative tasks are streamlined with a customized medication disposal strategy, including policy development, regulatory and compliance management, documentation and education.
Community coalitions appreciate how Element MDS complements their efforts to prevent medication misuse, abuse and contamination of the public water supply. Because the kits can arrive individually packaged and ready for immediate use, they can be quickly and easily distributed to residents. With a minimum purchase, the kits can be customized with an organization’s logo.
Community take-back events, a specific day when residents can “take back” medication to a specific location for collection and bulk incineration, are an effective medication disposal option. However, because they are infrequent, what do residents do with their medication until the next take-back program? What if residents are not able to get to the event or feel uneasy about attending one? The answer – Element MDS.
“Element MDS is a safe, at-home disposal system that provides an opportunity to educate community members about the environmental impact of improperly disposing of medication... and helps create awareness about the importance of safeguarding current medications in the home, to prevent the opportunity for medication misuse and abuse – especially youth.”
Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition
“Our patients and their families are increasingly aware of the issues associated with flushing medications. Many have expressed concern. Element MDS allows staff to dispose of medication in an efficient and compliant manner. Our nurses love it.”

“Element MDS is very convenient and simple to use. Our nurses are delighted with it.”
