Protocol for nature: Unused drugs will be destroyed

A “Waste Medicine Collection Campaign” was launched with the cooperation of Turgutlu Municipality, Environmental Pharmacists Cooperative (ÇEKOOP) and Manisa Pharmacists’ Chamber to safely dispose of expired and unused medicines.

With the project, waste medicine collection boxes will be placed in 30 voluntary pharmacies across Turgutlu.

Pharmaceutical wastes will be destroyed by the licensed company after collection. Turgutlu Mayor Çetin Akın said, “I believe that our citizens will be sensitive about waste medicine in order to leave a clean and livable environment for our future generations. I expect our pharmacists and fellow countrymen to support our campaign.”
