Medication Disposal

ENVIRx

 

Look for this sign in your pharmacy!

 

Check your medication labels – chances are you have expired or unused medicines, vitamins and over-the-counter products in your home. Return these unused medications to your pharmacist for environmentally safe disposal! Throwing medicines in the trash or flushing them down the toilet is unsafe and can harm the environment.

About the ENVIRx Program: Through the ENVIRx Program, pharmacists promote safe and effective drug use while giving Albertans an opportunity to return unused and expired medications to their community pharmacy. In 2014 alone, the ENVIRx Program collected over 71 metric tonnes of unused and expired medications for disposal in an environmentally friendly manner.

 

By bringing in your old mediations to your pharmacy, it presents an opportunity to touch base with your pharmacist and talk about a medication that hasn't worked or a perhaps a situation that has changed. Your pharmacist is available to help you with all your medication questions.
