Welcome to Wincobank Medical Centre
RECYCLE YOUR OLD INHALER
New research shows that 58% of people in the UK are putting their used inhalers into their home waste bin, where it can end up at landfill or being incinerated. Councils can't always recycle the plastic and gases contained in inhalers. Again, the inhaler may go to landfill or incineration.
'Complete the Cycle' is an easy and convenient way to recycle your inhalers. The scheme helps to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions, moving towards a more environmentally sustainable treatment of respiratory disease. The inhalers are collected as part of routine deliveries, so no extra miles are travelled, and then taken to be sorted for recycling or recovery. Recovery means using the non-recyclable parts of the inhaler to generate energy.
Simply pop into your local pharmacy, to see if they're part of the Recycling Old Inhalers scheme.
