Public asked to turn in old medications

Medications Return Program ensures safe disposal of old or expired prescription drugs.

Clean out your medicine cabinet! The BC Pharmacy Association (BCPhA) and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) urge residents to return their old medications to their local pharmacy to protect themselves, their families and the environment.

“Unused or expired medications can be potentially harmful if swallowed by children or pets. They can also contaminate the environment if thrown in the trash or flushed down a toilet.”

BC’s Medications Return Program ensures safe and effective disposal of old or expired prescription drugs, as well as oral dosage over-the counter medications and natural health products. More information on the program can be found at www.medicationsreturn.ca.

The British Columbia Pharmacy Association is a not-for-profit, voluntary, professional association of pharmacists and pharmacies. It represents more than 2,700 pharmacists and almost 800 pharmacies throughout British Columbia.
