The California State Senate unanimously, on a vote of 39-0, passed SB 212 (Senator Jackson, Assembly member's Ting and Gray), which will establish a comprehensive statewide take-back system for sharps and medications. If signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, SB 212 will be the first in the U.S. to establish a comprehensive, producer-funded take-back program to provide safe and convenient disposal options for home-generated pharmaceutical drugs and sharps waste.
