Safe Medicine Disposal
Unwanted and unused medicines waste millions of pounds every year. To help avoid this you should not order more than you need. If you do have an excess medication stock at home then medicine disposal should be carried out properly. Unwanted medicines should not be left in the home as this increases risk that they can be found and used by other people. It also increases the temptation to start taking medications again without checking if it is still safe to do so.
All unwanted medication should be taken to your local pharmacy for safe medicine disposal. Try to return your medications in their original packaging if possible. Your pharmacist will then dispose of your medicines properly and safely.
Do not throw your old medicines into the bin as these can be found by children or animals and can do serious harm. Do not tip your old medication down the sink or down the toilet. This can lead to the local water supply becoming contaminated, or the local environment becoming polluted.
Returned medicines are never re-used by your pharmacy. All returned medication is destroyed using safe medicine disposal procedures. This is true even if the medication has never been opened, as the pharmacist cannot guarantee that the medication has been stored safely.
Unwanted medicines can be returned to Neem Tree Pharmacy.
