WHAT YOU CAN RECYCLE
Use this Zero Waste Box to recycle:
Any brand of empty medicine blister packs.
- Blister packs must not have originally been destined for disposal as clinical or hazardous waste.
- Blister packs must not have come into contact with biological contaminants e.g. from within an operating or treatment environment.
Do not send in:
Any medicine and medication residue including tablets, pills, lozenges and caplets as medicine should be returned to a pharmacy for safe disposal. Boxes received that contain tablets will need to be diverted to Energy from Waste (and therefore may not be recycled).
Cardboard, paper and any other types of waste other than empty medicine blister packs.
Any other medicine containers such as bottles, inhalers or sprays.
Hazardous waste (for example sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, toxic, infectious or pathogenic) which presents a danger to the environment, or to people. Batteries, pressurized canisters, broken glass and medical waste.
