Fish Don't Do Drugs: Sat Oct 17


All prescription drugs, as well as over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, supplements & natural health products in oral dosage form are now part of a new stewardship program — the BC Medications Return Program. Its purpose is to recover unused or expired drugs before they are disposed of in garbage or poured down drains.

Mayne Island residents can return unused medications to the Health Centre on October 17th 10 am — 3 pm. Bring medications in their original containers (plastic bottles or blister packs, but not outer packaging). Remove any personal identification, such as your name. Dr Losier and a medical student will be on hand to answer questions.

Medications can also be returned to participating pharmacists. Visit www.healthsteward.ca for more information.
