WHAT YOU CAN RECYCLE

Use this Zero Waste Box to recycle:

  • Any brand of empty medicine blister packs

For Business Waste Transfer Notes, please use EWC 15 01 05

 

Important information:
  • Due to the nature of the accepted waste, this box is only available for purchase to pharmacists and medical settings, and should only be accessed or supervised by trained staff.
  • We cannot accept medicine and medication residue. Boxes received that contain tablets will need to be diverted to Energy from Waste (and therefore may not be recycled).
  • Blister packs must not have originally been destined for disposal as clinical or hazardous waste.
  • Blister packs must not have come into contact with biological contaminants e.g. from within an operating or treatment environment.

    Do not send in:

    • Any medicine and medication residue including tablets, pills, lozenges and caplets as medicine should be returned to a pharmacy for safe disposal.

    • Cardboard, paper and any other types of waste other than empty medicine blister packs.

    • Any other medicine containers such as bottles, inhalers or sprays.

    • Hazardous waste (for example sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, toxic, infectious or pathogenic) which presents a danger to the environment, or to people. Batteries, pressurized canisters, broken glass and medical waste.

    Zero Waste Box Shipping Notes:

    For the Zero Waste Box system to work effectively and safely, please follow these simple shipping guidelines on how and what you can ship back to TerraCycle:

    1. Only send in items this system accepts. Sending in items that fall outside the selected category causes contamination and the need for added separation, which increases costs. This includes (but not limited to) liquid and food waste, cardboard, paper, compostable material such as PLA and PHA (except for the Biodegradable Plastics - Zero Waste Box™), mixed fibre fabric, borosilicate glass and electronic waste.
    2. Do not send in household items that may be considered hazardous waste. These include items such as lithium-ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, oil-based paint or medical sharps, organics, broken glass, biomedical waste, soiled nappies, or expired medication. Do not send in anything sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, toxic, infectious, or pathogenic.
    3. Do not ship dripping packages. Please make sure all excess product has been removed before putting it in your Zero Waste Box. If you choose to rinse your items, please note that the system must be completely dry prior to shipping.
