Information for the Pharmacist

The Alberta's Pharmacists’ Association’s (RxA) ENVIRx program recognizes the important relationship between Albertans' health and the environment. Through ENVIRx, year round, pharmacists promote safe and effective drug use while giving Albertans an opportunity to return unused and expired medications to their community pharmacy.

These medications are collected by pharmacies and incinerated in an environmentally friendly manner. For information on how to become a part of the ENVIRx Program visit www.rxa.ca
