If you have out of date or unwanted medicines, both prescription or over the counter drugs, don’t bin them or flush them. Jays Pharmacy can deal with your Waste Medicine Disposal in Dibden Purlieu.
You can take your unwanted or out of date medicines back to our Pharmacy for safe disposal, and it’s completely FREE.
Each year, enormous quantities of unused and expired medications are dumped into bins or flushed down toilets and sinks. The effects on the environment and human health are unclear but evidence is pointing to the presence of chemicals from prescriptions and over-the-counter medications in soil, drinking water and the surrounding environment. Just as proper medication administration is important, so is safe and cautious disposal.

80,906 MORE hip replacements*
101,351 MORE knee replacements*

“Excellent chemist – very helpful and efficient staff. So lucky to have it down the road.”
“Simply the best in the area. As an asthma sufferer heading off in September to NZ (their winter ‘flu season) Mr Patel was the only source of flu vaccine we could access prior to departure as the GPs didn’t have it. Always a first class service.”
“Fantastic chemist, will bend over backwards to try to help. Always go here rather than Boots or Day Lewis pharmacy because a) they are polite, friendly b) they are helpful. Well done Jays, we are lucky you are in our local area!”
