RLI provides you a cost-effective, safe, secure, and environmentally sound solution for the destruction of expired, obsolete, or short-dated medicines and DEA controlled substances.
The Return Logistics Advantage
Return Logistics International Corporation (RLI) works with distribution centers that need DEA compliant destruction and provides them with certified proof of disposal. Since 1996, when RLI opened its waste processing and returns center in Savannah, GA, it has maintained the proper permits and licenses for solid waste processing, DEA controlled substances, hazardous waste large quantity generation and required state licenses.
From a single box to a truckload, RLI provides these distribution centers with the peace of mind that any long-term liabilities associated with mismanagement of these products have been eliminated.
