Sort medicines separately from other waste

Medicines are hazardous waste.

Pack pharmaceutical waste as follows

  • loose tablets in a transparent bag
  • blister packs without cartons in a bag (cardboard wrapping counts as a carton)
  • creams and liquid medicines in their own packaging
  • medicines containing iodine (Jodix, Betadine, Iodosorb) in their own packaging, separately from other medicines

Where can I take it?

Pharmacies accept out-of-date and unused household medicines, as well as syringes, needles and mercury thermometers, free of charge.

No pharmaceutical waste is received at Pirkanmaa Jätehuolto’s waste stations and waste centres.
