Health Product Stewardship Association

Medications for pain, your birth control pills or those tablets you bought for your trip …three years ago. Those used sharps for your pets or the one’s needed for a health condition in your household.  If you look in your medicine cabinet, chances are you'll find medications and sharps that are expired or that you no longer need. Luckily, you can now return these medications and sharps to a pharmacy in your community through programs offered by the health products industries called Ontario Medications Return Program (OMRP) and the Ontario Sharps Collection Program (OSCP). When you drop off your medications and sharps, you'll not only ensure they're disposed of properly – you'll also keep them out of the wrong hands, preventing abuse or accidental ingestion, needle stick injuries – and protecting our environment in the process.
