In England, pharmacies are legally obliged to accept back unwanted medicines. This means that you can take your medicine to a local pharmacy and they can dispose of this safely for you.

It is also possible to send the unwanted medication back to Echo. To do so, you’ll need to read this form first and then contact us so we can arrange collection.

We will sort them into solids, liquids and aerosols. The local NHS England Team will then make arrangements for a waste contractor to pick up the medicines at regular intervals from us.
