Medicines

Too Good To Waste

What would you like to reduce, reuse, repair or recycle?

Medicines

Take washed, empty glass or plastic bottles to a Glass Recycling Point or Packaging Recycling Point (W: www.recycleforscotland.com) or place into your kerbside collection where appropriate. (See KERBSIDE RECYCLING).


Where possible buy generic, non-branded medicines. These generally have less packaging than branded varieties.


Do not put old or unused medicines down the drain, the toilet or in your bin.


Return any unused or old medicine to a chemist for safe disposal.
