We Accept Medication Waste

You can bring expired and unused medications accumulated at home to our pharmacy for free. We properly dispose of medication waste as hazardous waste. According to the Medicines Act and regulatory guidelines, such medications cannot be reimbursed to the customer. 

Instructions for Returning Medication Waste

  • Remove prescription labels and other patient information from the medication packages.
  • Bring the medications to the pharmacy preferably in a transparent, sealed plastic bag.
  • You can remove tablets and capsules from their original packaging, but tablets and capsules in blister packs do not need to be removed from the packaging. 
  • Return liquid medications preferably in their original packaging, and pack them in a separate plastic bag.
  • Return iodine tablets and other iodine-containing medications in a separate, transparent plastic bag in their original packaging. Iodine-containing products include Jodix tablets and Betadine and Iodosorb products.
  • Return mercury thermometers separately from medication waste. For broken mercury thermometers, enclose them, for example, in a sealed glass jar.
  • Pack syringes and needles for safety reasons, for example, in an empty plastic bottle or glass jar.
  • Note! We do not accept chemicals, hairspray cans, battery-operated thermometers, or other electrical devices, batteries, etc.

We are happy to advise on issues related to returns, just ask us for help!
