NEVER throw unused or expired medicines in the rubbish bin or flush them down the toilet. Children can take the medicine from the bin, and medicines that have been flushed down a toilet could end up in the drinking water system or harm the environment.
Bring your unwanted medicines to us where we can dispose of them safely.
We do this FREE of charge.
All we require is that you read the ‘Unwanted Medicines Prompt Card’ that will help you, and us, to best sort out your returned medication.
We can also safely dispose of your sharps waste. Please ensure any needles or sharps are enclosed and sealed in a yellow sharps disposal unit before handing them over to us. We can only take your sharps if they are in a yellow sharps disposal unit which is available on prescription or can be purchased for around £2.
