RUM Bin Project
Many medicines deteriorate with time, and this results in changes to their chemical composition, making them potentially harmful.
Disposing of unwanted medicines by throwing them in the garbage or flushing them down the toilet can be dangerous as they leach back into the food chain via water or fertilisers made from landfill.
The only safe way to dispose of these unwanted medicines is through the Return Unwanted Medicines (RUM) scheme. The RUM Bin Project is the easiest and most environmentally friendly way to dispose of expired medicines.
So if you have unwanted medicines lying in the back of your cupboards, return them to our pharmacy for free and we will put them in a secure bin for collection and safe disposal.
A ‘Webster Pack’ is a fantastic, easy to use system to help manage your medications, ensuring you take the right medication at the right time. It contains individually sealed compartments labelled from Monday to Sunday and from Breakfast to Bedtime.
These packs are perfect for people who are on more than 3 medications, have trouble with opening medication bottles and packets, people who are having trouble with memory, or simply wanting to take the hassle out of organising medications.
For more information please come into our pharmacy and speak with one of our packing staff or a pharmacist. If you would like to find out more information on Webster Packing please give us a call on 9534 2386. Our friendly staff are here to assist.
