DISPOSAL OF MEDICINES IN EUROPE

Click on your country to find out more information

By clicking on a country you can see a summary of how medicines disposal is arranged in that country and a link to national level information. The information refers to human medicines that have been meant for private use and have expired, become unusable or are not needed for other purposes (“pharmaceutical waste”), unless otherwise mentioned.

This map has been developed based on material available online at the time of research and relies on active input from all interested parties to remain up-to-date. Please help us by providing any new information or links you might be aware of (preferably government or institutional sources) by filling out the form or write us directly at medsdisposal@gmail.com
