The RxA ENVIRx program recognizes the important relationship between Albertans' health and the environment. Through ENVIRx, 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 at certified locations. Please visit http://www.rxa.ca/for-the-public/medication-disposal.aspx for more information.
ENVIRx program is administered by Alberta Pharmacists’ Association. Health products industries provides financial contributions to the program.
Consumers can return old/unused medication at any participating community pharmacies across Alberta. There is no fees to consumers associated with the program.
For more information on medications and their disposal, talk to your pharmacist or call the Alberta Pharmacists’ Association at (780) 990-0326.
