PERMACULTURE A REVOLUTION

The provision of food, shelter, water, energy and waste management are contained within permaculture, and therefore, Fill-A-Box, Winrows and Stat-Medicment-Disposal contribute to this revolution. The word permaculture derives from the words permanent culture and permanent agriculture.

It is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have diversity, stability, and resilence of natural  ecosystems, it is the harmonious integration of landscape and people, providing their food, energy and shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.

Think about providing these things in your local neighborhood. Permaculture is rebuilding the community, re-localize the control of these provisions for a sustainable human life in an ethical and ecological way.

You can depend on Fill-A-Box, Winrows, and Stat-Medicament-Disposal to continue to develop programs that are permaculture.

Go to Fill-A-Box, Winrows or Stat-Medicament-Disposal websites and see permaculture in action and find out how to institute these programs in your community.

PRIVATIZING RECYCLING IN YOUR COMMUNITY

PRIVATIZING RECYCLING IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Reducing the size and cost of government is the watchword and movement for the next 5-10 years. Local, City, County governments are facing challenges from shrinking revenue and rising costs.

The private sector of recycling provides services in an efficient low cost manner with innovations not seen by local government! (see Biloxi Sun Hearld March 23, 2011).

The fact is, that the cities with the highest recycling rates in America, San Francisco California; Seattle, Washington is proof enough that privatitization works.

And, this is where innovation comes from, because there is an incentive to innovate to increase recycling rates, decrease cost, and be efficient while protecting the enviroment.

Compare Fill-A-Box synergy programs from a private company that strive to innovate while protecting the environment.

PHARMACEUTICALS, HORMONES, AND OTHER ORGANIC WASTEWATER CONTAMINANTS IN U.S. STREAMS

PHARMACEUTICALS, HORMONES, AND OTHER ORGANIC WASTEWATER CONTAMINANTS IN U.S. STYREAMS

Recently the U.S. Geologocal Survey (USGS) released a report that there is a growing concern for potential adverse human and ecological health effects resulting from the production, use and disposal of chemicals even common household medicines. This research shows that many of these compounds enter the environment disperse and persist far longer than first anticipated, and surprisingly, little is know about the extent of environmental effects or the ultimate fate of many synthetic organic chemicals.

Many of these compounds pass through wastewater treatment plants or septic systems which are not designed to remove them.

What is stricking is if you go to the FDA Consumer Guidance-Disposal of unused medications they state “Most drugs can be thrown in the household trash, but consumers should take certain precautions before tossing them out.”

Wow, you should be concerned! Only Stat-Medicament-Disposal in synergy with Fill-A-Box offers complete removal from homes and your water systems and landfills. Want to know more, contact [email protected] or [email protected]

MANAGING UNUSED-UNNEEDED PHARMECUTICALS AND PROTECTING YOUR DRINKING WATER

MANAGING UNUSED-UNNEEDED PHARMECUTICALS AND PROTECTING YOUR DRINKING WATER

Improper disposal of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals is having an adverse impact on the environment, and on human health in your community!

Studies have demonstrated these adverse effects and raise concerns about the serious consequences that will occur if action is not taken.

Since 1980, unused-unneeded pharmecuticals have been increasingly recognized as chemical pollutants of the environment by the EPA!

The highest levels detected are from non-perscription drugs, antibiotics and prescriptions, which have adverse consequences for you and your family members, including endocrine  disruption, such as (physical, mental, and sexual developments) and mostly antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. Did you know that the EPA has found ampicillin resistant bacteia in every U.S. river tested in 1999?

If unused-unneeded pharmecuticals are not eliminated during sewage treatment they eventually reach your drinking water. In fact, most sewage and water treatment facilities in your cities and towns do not treat pharmecutical contaminants, so they are left untreated and enter surface, ground, and drinking water.

Fill-A-Box and Stat-Medicament-Disposal incorporates compartmentalization, automation, and bar-code scanning technology for their safe and effective removal of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals, this in cooperation with it’s online database enables your community to quantify and identify what you have accomplished in your community with Fill-A-Box and Stat-Medicament-Disposal.

A paradigm shift in thinking as to the removal of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals from the waste stream and landfills, and most importantly your drinking water systems.

UNUSED-UNNEEDED PHARMECUTICALS PROGRAM

 

 

UNUSED-UNNEEDED PHARMECUTICALS PROGRAM

LAW PASSED (S-3397)

 

On October 10, 2010 President Obama signed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010.

This law amends the Controlled Substance Act and allows Public and Private entities to develop a variety of methods for collection and disposal in a secure, convienent, and responsible manner.

Currently the DEA is developing rules which are expected sometime in 2012.

However, Controlled substances as a percentage of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals is very small. And, currently if you log onto the White House Drug Policy you will be directed to either flush them down the toilet, or place them in a bag of coffee grounds and through in your trash.

Currently the EPA has found the presence of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals in your drinking water systems, streams and lakes throughout the United States, and a majority of these findings are not controlled substances, such as acetaminophem, cough syrups, etc.

Fill-A-Box collection system is an alternative to flushing your unused-unneeded pharmecuticals down the toilet or throwing them in the trash.

Fill-A-Box segragates unused-unneeded pharmecuticals from the rest of your recycables.

Fill-A-Box creates a database for your address/location of the unused-unneeded pharmecuticals recycled by you.

Stat-Medicament-Disposal then uses your unused-unneeded pharmecuticals for it’s waste-to-energy program.

THE PUBLIC HEALTH IS PROTECTED SAFELY!

THE EASE OF USE CANNOT BE QUANTIFIED!

IMPLEMENTATION IS EASY!

PARTICIPATION INCREASES EXPONETIALLY!

And, there is a safe and secure record.

Unusued or Expired Medication

The DEA on April 30, 2011 had a turn in of unused or expired medication.  You could look up a location for drop-off at www.dea.gov or called (800) 882-9593.  In the past, costs for this program has been exorbant $190.00 per # collected, and the amount collected has been miniscule.  First, unless you read about the program in a newspaper or heard a public service announcement, most people do not even know about this program.  Second, there is a limited amount of drop-off sites. Third, just look at the costs of gasoline or disel to drive to and from the drop-off site.  LOOK AT THE FILL-A-BOX COLLECTION SYSTEM.
