Information for the Pharmacist
The pharmacist is asked to deposit returned medications in a cardboard box lined with a plastic bag. When the box is full it is to be sealed and a decal is attached to the box indicating that the box contains dead drugs. Collection is arranged through Stericycle. For more information on participation and the products covered, contact your Provincial Pharmacists Association (PANS).
In 2014, Nova Scotia Environment conducted public consultations on proposed changes to the provincial solid waste regulations. A summary of the results of the consultation process can be found in the document, "What We Heard". The feedback received from the public will be used to help guide the amendments due later this year. For more information on the consultations, see the document "Revising Our Path Forward".
