Safely dispose of your medication.

Not only does expired medication lose its effectiveness, it can also be harmful to your health. Medication that’s unlabelled or left for years in the medicine cabinet can easily be misused. To avoid unpleasant surprises, be sure to clean out your medicine cabinet at least once or twice a year.

Clean out your medicine cabinet in 3 easy steps

Check the expiry date on your medication

Used or unwanted syringes and needles

Used or unwanted syringes and needles can cause injury. To avoid accidents, make sure to place them in a disposal container designed for this purpose, which you can pick up at your pharmacy’s prescription counter. Just bring the container back to the pharmacy when it’s full so your pharmacist can safely dispose of its contents.
