Costco President's response............

I've been getting my prescriptions from Costco for about a year. The pharmacy team attached the label and then put heavy scotch like tape around the label and the entire vial.

I got sick and tired of trying to remove the paper from the vial in order to recycle it. I invariably just tossed the vial, as I couldn't even use a Sharpie over the tape to obliterate identifying info. About 2 months I emailed the President of Costco and asked why the Pharmacy did this and how it really stopped me from recycling, and doing the right thing.

The response I got from the President is............tape is no longer put on the vials. I just recycled two vials. I never received an email, but I know he got and answered it.
