MEDICATION CASING (LAMINATED FOIL)

Description

The medication casing used to package the tablet pills are made of thermoformed plastic packaging, which is bonded to a piece of aluminium foil.

Why is it not recyclable?

In recycling, materials are usually collected and sorted with the same items then recycled. Tablets are packaged in packets made of thermoformed plastic and aluminium. These packets are difficult to separate at general recycling processing plants, thus they are not recyclable.

Note: Unused, unwanted or expired tablets or pills should be returned to the pharmacy for safe disposal.

Alternatives

  • If possible, ask for equivalent medication that comes in a bottle, that way you can recycle the bottle afterwards.
