Over-the-Counter Drug Waste
Over-the-counter medications, such as those used to control headaches, allergies, and colds, can be purchased without a prescription. However, you must still handle and dispose of these medicines properly as they can contaminate our waters if dropped down the toilet or sink. If placed into the trash, they can contaminate landfills and runoff.
Even over-the-counters drugs can cause illness or injury if misused by children and even adults. Consumers can dispose of these drugs along with other medications through methods such as a mailback envelope or drop-off receptacle.
Non-Controlled/Non-Hazardous Prescription Drug Waste
Non-controlled/non-hazardous prescription medications1 include those used to treat high blood pressure, diabetes, and bacterial infections. These drugs can also contaminate our waters and landfills. They can be very dangerous if taken by those for whom they are not prescribed.
In some states, it is against state regulations for providers to place these drugs into the trash. These drugs can be sent for disposal at a medical waste incinerator.
Controlled Drug Waste
Controlled substances are categorized into five schedules “depending upon the drug’s acceptable medical use and the drug’s abuse or dependency potential.”2 Schedule I substances, such as heroin and ecstasy, have no accepted medical use and are easily abused. Schedules II are prescription drugs that are most likely abused, such as hydrocodone. Schedule V medications are the least likely to be abused of the controlled substances. They consist of very limited amounts of narcotics, e.g., Robitussin AC and Lyrica.
Controlled drug waste must be managed according to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Inventory-controlled drugs can only be disposed of through special measures such as a reverse distributor.
Prescribed controlled drugs can only be disposed of by the person to whom they are prescribed. Consumers can either obtain a DEA-compliant mail-back envelope from organizations, such as their pharmacy or dispose of their drugs into a DEA-compliant disposal receptacle located at a hospital, pharmacy, or police station.
Certain health care practitioners who provide direct patient care must complete an approved human trafficking prevention training course in order to renew their licenses. In order to satisfy the training requirement, the course must be approved by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

I have made x-rays while working as a dental assistant in Texas or in another state. If this applies to you, you must take an RDA Course given by a TSBDE-approved RDA Course Provider and then register with the TSBDE. Once you hold a TSBDE RDA Certificate and display your certificate where you work you may begin making x-rays. The TSBDE does not recognize an RDA Certificate issued by another state.
I have never made x-rays while working as a dental assistant. Select the one that applies to you:
