Medicine Disposal

Do you have expired or unused medications in your home, and want to know what to do with them?

Medicines must be discarded of safely and a number of drugs require a specific type of disposal. We can help make sure your medicines don't end up in the wrong places.  

Return any old or unwanted medicines to our pharmacy. If you have loose sharps (needles and syringes)  , we have a  bin that you can tip sharps directly into. We will accept small sharps bins for disposal as well. Make sure they are securely sealed. Controlled drug returns and Cytotoxic drugs are handled in a special way, if you know you are returning any of those please let us know when you hand them over.

Let's keep medicines out of our waterways and away from children, return them on your next visit.  

Talk to one of our pharmacists if you have any questions, or contact use below. Our pharmacy is conveniently located centrally on the main street of Howick Village.
