Pharmaceuticals and Medical Sharps

Ontario's Health Products Stewardship Association administers the Ontario Medication Returns Program (OMRP) and the Ontario Sharps Collection Program (OSCP).  These programs are free to the public and operate locally across Ontario through participating pharmacies.

  • Visit your local pharmacy to return medications/prescription drugs and medical sharps.  
  • Pharmacies will not accept medical sharps that are not in an approved sharps container.  You can pick up an approved sharps container at your local pharmacy, free of charge.
Find the pharmacy nearest you by visiting or by downloading the Recyclepedia App on your device.
