Health Products Eligible for Collection in the MMRP Program Include

  2. Over-the-Counter Medications (Units sold in oral dosage form)
  3. Natural Health Products (Units sold in oral dosage form)

No sharps, syringes or needles

Why is it Important?

Keeping medicines around the house is not safe. Current child-resitant packaging, while helpful, is not alone sufficient to prevent children's/teens' access to medications. You can have an immediate impact by securing all medications at home in a safe and secure location which is out of sight. Flushing your medicine down the toilet or drain, or tossing them in the garbage, is also not recommended.
