As a healthcare facility, what can I recycle through Pharmacycle

Pharmacycle accepts all medicinal blister packs except for those that have come into contact with a cytotoxic substance or which contained a Schedule 8 drug.

Blister packs still containing medication/pharmaceuticals.

Outer cardboard packaging – however this can be recycled through your commingled recycling service if you have one!

As a healthcare facility, are there any costs involved in participating in Pharmacycle?

Yes - to cover the costs of the program, including administration, logistics, processing and reporting, we charge a service fee based on the service model and products you choose.

What types of blister packs does Pharmacycle accept?

Medicinal blister packs and medication packs/dosage administration aids that consist of a plastic blister and aluminium foil or a mixed paper aluminium foil; either as a composite or separate (single material) can be returned for recycling.
