Where can I drop off out-dated or leftover medicine?
Over 90% of pharmacies in BC participate in the Medications Return Program, a take-back system for old prescription and non-prescription medicine. Participating pharmacies collect expired, unused and unwanted medications from the public for safe disposal. The program includes prescription and non-prescription medications, natural health products, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal creams, inhalers, and patches. The Medications Return Program is administered by the Health Products Stewardship Association on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry.
