Waste Medicine Disposal

Got any out-of-date or unwanted medicines? Tideswell Pharmacy provides safe waste medicine disposal of prescription and over-the-counter drugs in Tideswell.

Untold amounts of unused and expired medications are discarded in bins or flushed down toilets and sinks every year. While the full effects on the environment and human health are still being understood the evidence points to the presence of chemicals from these medicines in soil, drinking water and the surrounding environment. Just as proper medication administration is crucial, so is safe and prudent disposal.

Across the UK, unused prescription medicines cost the NHS over £300 million per year. This could be used to pay for:

– 80,906 MORE hip replacements*
– 101,351 MORE knee replacements*
– 19,799 MORE drug treatment courses for breast cancer*
– 11,778 MORE community nurses*
– 300,000 MORE drug treatment courses for Alzheimer’s*
