When the Post-Consumer Pharmaceutical Stewardship Association (PCPSA) was established in 1999, it was done to educate consumers and collect unused or expired pharmaceutical. Since then, the association has grown to accept all medications and since 2013, we also administer a program for sharp devices in Ontario. Simply put, we have outgrown our name.
To that end, as of May 1st 2013, we will formally transitioned our association name from the PCPSA to "Health Products Stewardship Association." The programs name will continue as "Medications Return Program” and ”Sharps Return Program”.
