Return them to your Pharmacy
Each year people are harmed or killed by accidentally poisoning themselves with old medicines. Don't be a statistic.
Why can't I throw my medicines away myself ?
By throwing your old medicines down the toilet you can effect the ecology of the water system. If everyone threw their old medicines down the toilet, the water system would become polluted by all the antibiotics, hormones and other drugs in your medicine cupboard.
Why should I bring my medicines back to the Pharmacist ?
So that your unwanted medicine can be disposed of in a safe way. All returned medicines will be incinerated.
Will my old medicines go to third world countries ?
Yes, some of the returned medicines can be sent to help others less fortunate than ourselves. Only medicines that are un-opened and have a minimum of 18 months left on the expiry date can be sent to Africa. Any medicines that fall outside of these parameters will be incinerated and will not be reused or recycled in any way.
When can I take my medicines into the Pharmacy ?
At any time (according to opening hours) you can take your old medicines into your Pharmacy.
