All medical facilities, including pharmacies, healthcare workers, and hospitals, face a common problem, which is the disposal of controlled drugs.
We, at TCW, understand the importance of controlled drug destruction; hence, we offer end-to-end services to dispose of controlled drugs to prevent any sort of poisoning, even by accident.
Disposal of controlled drugs UK in care homes should be done only as per the advice given by community nurses and pharmacists from GPs. Irrespective of whether the drugs are used or not, if they are not to be administered anymore, they should be disposed of as per the regulations in place. The supplier of the medicine, such as the chemist or pharmacist, is responsible for controlled drug destruction.
Pharmacists tend to collect all the drugs in one place, commonly known as the RUM (regular-use medicine) bin. The pharmacists are obligated to record all drugs collected. Once the bin is full, the local municipality or a waste management company on contract collects them at regular intervals, and then they are incinerated, destroyed, or denatured, as the case may be, as per UK regulations.

I have recently started using their service for Imaan Ltd. I found them professional, efficient and very promptly the accounts were set up. We have taken their service for sanitary waste and sharps waste for our 12 sites across the UK. So far we are very pleased with their service provided.
I've heard a lot about Trikon, and I'd like to say that I've had a great experience with them. The key thing is to communicate and then you will be surprised at how helpful Trikon can be. We had a couple of minor issues with the start of the contract but nothing that Trikon and the team didn't sort out quickly. They have been more than flexible during the last 3 months of C-19 so no complaints there. To be honest their service so far has been excellent and far far better than Biffa ever was. Give them a chance, communicate and you will be very happy. Good value service and very helpful.
Excellent service for all our branches. From our personal experience, Trikon has always delivered in a timely manner and excellent price. Way better than having Veolia, Biffa and Citron Hygiene.
