Pharmasave safely disposes of your unused or expired drugs

June 27, 2024

Ensure that unwanted prescriptions don’t pose a risk to you and to others.

You shouldn’t have to wonder about how to dispose of your unwanted medications. For a safe, responsible and environmentally friendly solution, take your unused or expired medications to your local Pharmasave for disposal.

Pharmasave stores accept all kinds of medications including: prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, topical antibiotic and antifungal creams (in their original containers), traditional Chinese medicines, natural health products that are taken orally such as vitamins, minerals, herbal products, probiotics and homeopathic medicines.

Pharmacists are trained medication experts and have the tools and knowledge to dispose of medications safely. Talk to your Pharmasave pharmacist to see what medications and products they accept and how to package them properly for drop off.

Check your medicine cabinet at least twice a year for expired prescription and non-prescription medications as well as any medications you no longer need:

  • Check expiry dates on bottles/containers
  • Look for signs of discolouration or strange odours
  • Take expired medications to your Pharmasave for disposal

Visit your local Pharmasave today and speak with your Pharmasave pharmacist about how to dispose of medications safely and responsibly.
