Unwanted Medicines
You can't take the correct disposal of unwanted medicine in the UK lightly. Failing to do so poses a serious threat to your loved ones and other living beings. At Rickys Ewell Spring Pharmacy, we understand the importance of pharmacy waste disposal and we are here to help you achieve that.

We accept unwanted medication from our customers including aerosols, liquids, and solids. Our staff carefully collects all the medication and hands it over to the NHS-approved disposal contractor. The contractor will then dispose of the medication in a way that has zero adverse effects on the environment.

This is one of the safest ways to dispose unwanted medicine. It not only protects everyone in your household but also our environment.

Why You Should Properly Dispose Unwanted Medication?
You should dispose prescription medication properly once they are no longer needed. Caregivers and consumers need to monitor medicine closely and promptly remove all unwanted medication from their surroundings to avoid confusion and accidental consumption. Accidental consumption may have extreme health consequences and has the potential to be deadly in certain cases.

This rule of disposal applies to any medication that has passed its expiry date, unused and unopened medication. Simply bring your unwanted medication to Rickys Ewell Spring Pharmacy and we will make sure it is properly disposed.

Safely Disposing Unwanted Medicine
Medicine cannot be recycled.  According to the NHS, the best practice for unwanted medicine disposal is by returning it to a pharmacy waste disposal service. One must return medication in their original packaging since certain medicines may require special care during disposal. Always keep in mind to disclose any information about any strong and sensitive medication.

Improper Disposal of Medication
It is never safe to flush medicine down the toilet or down the sink as such actions result in harmful contamination of groundwater systems and the environment in general. 

Do not hesitate to contact Rickys Ewell Spring Pharmacy if you have any doubts about safe disposal of medicines. We are always here to advise and provide recommendations on all your important queries to ensure that any medication that you no longer need causes no harm to your loved ones and our environment.
