Pharmacies play a fundamental role in raising awareness about the importance of properly disposing of unused or expired medications by providing a drop-off locations for such medications as over-the-counter, prescription and natural health products through the Ontario Medications Return Program (OMRP).
You can call the HPSA to register your location at 1-844-535-8889 or send an email to [email protected]. The OMRP covers the costs associated with the responsible disposal of health products returned by the public. There is no cost to you.
Please find a list of products that are accepted and not accepted through the OMRP. Your pharmacy clients will be able to find the closest participating pharmacies to their location through the Health Products Stewardship Association by typing in their postal code or address.
