Registered Reverse Distributors in the US


Reverse distributors are a key part of the pharmaceutical supply chain and contribute to both keeping prescriptions drugs from people who should not have access to them and in reducing the quantity of untreated drugs that go to landfill.

A reverse distributor is anyone that receives prescription hazardous waste pharmaceuticals for the purposes of facilitating or verifying manufacturer credits.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency defines reverse distributors as "a person who receives controlled substances acquired from another DEA registrant for the purpose of returning unwanted, unusable, or outdated controlled substances to the manufacturer or the manufacturer's agent."

The DEA does not recommend specific distributors but they do have a certification program for distributors. As of August 2020, the following companies were registered:
