HAMILTON’S James Dean Pharmacy has resolved the issue with its secure document disposal contractor after a number of prescription receipts were left beside Digby Rd earlier last month.
The documents were strewn across 30 metre stretch of road on April 24 and the contractor responsible said the documents were retrieved on the same day.
The recepts included the names of patients, their addresses, prescription medications and doses as well as their doctors’ names.
“We have resolved this issue,” a statement from Haul All Waste Management said.
“This has never happened before in the many years we have been in this business and it will never happen again.”
The Spectator understands that a recently-hired employee placed a load of documents from James Dean Pharmacy directly into a garbage truck, rather than shredding the items first as mandated by Haul All company policy.
A James Dean Pharmacy spokesperson issued a statement to The Spectator.
