PharmWaste

Danita Sepp Created by Danita Sepp

A competition sponsored by the Medical Returns Program and Pharmasave, about pharmaceuticals, environmental and human risks, and safe disposal. Details can be found at pharmwaste.ca.

Expired / unused pharmaceuticals are supposed to be returned to participating pharmacies in order for them to be incinerated. However, recent studies show that less than half of the population is even aware of the program (only 49% in British Columbia, results released January 2011).

The good news is that 75% of the people who know about the program use the program. So the goal now is to get the word out
