PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
1. Product Stewardship Plan
This plan is designed to collect and properly dispose of unused or expired health products
from the residential sector. Products included in this plan are:
 All prescriptions drugs
All dosage forms
 Over-the-Counter medications
Units sold in oral dosage form
 Natural Health Products
Units sold in oral dosage form
The Program includes both products clearly attributable to an existing steward, and orphan
products. Orphan products are those that are no longer in production, the steward is no
longer in business or products purchased outside Canada. The Program‟s goals are:







to run a province-wide, industry-administered product stewardship program in
compliance with the Regulation
to ensure that the public is able to return expired and unused health products for
disposal throughout the province
to provide a convenient system for the collection and disposal of expired and unused
health products
to provide the public with information on the location of collection sites
to ensure that collection sites accept products from the public free of charge
to achieve performance requirements or targets established in the plan
to ensure environmentally sound disposal of expired and unused health products.
Since 2000, the program has grown from 575 to 1,025 collection sites across the whole
province and the public has returned approximately 296,836 kg of unused or expired health
products for environmentally responsible disposal.
2. Recycling Regulation Requirements
In accordance with the requirements of their approved stewardship plan, there must be a
review of the program plan every five years. According to Section 6 of the Recycling
Regulation: A producer must review its approved plan and
(a) submit to a director proposed amendments to the approved plan, or
(b) advise a director in writing that no amendments to the approved plan are
necessary,
The BC Medications Return Program has developed and delivered an effective, cost
efficient, environmentally and socially responsible health products return program for
consumers on behalf of more than 140 members.
This Plan describes the current program and the priorities for the next 5-year period in the
context of the approval criteria set forth in the Regulation.

PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
3. The Stewardship Association
Mandate & Purpose
The Post-Consumer Pharmaceutical Stewardship Association (PCPSA) is a not-for-profit
association; meets its obligations, as outlined in the BC extra provincial Society Act, and
files the required reports with the Corporate Property Registry Branch of the Ministry of
Finance and is also registered with Industry Canada since 2000.
The PCPSA has been appointed as the agency to meet producer‟s obligations ashealth
products stewards. PCPSA‟s role is to perform on behalf of each member certain duties
required under the Regulation. As of December 2010, PCPSA‟s membership was
established at 140 members.
The Program is accountable to its members, the general public and the government of
British Columbia, through the Ministry of Environment. The Program is publically
accountable through its Annual Report.
Governance
The Association is a member-based association representing obligated stewards of health
products, as defined in the Recycling Regulation. The Association operates according to the
Bylaws approved by the Board to manage the affairs of the Association. A nine-member
Board of Directors is elected by the members.
The Board members are committed to maintaining a high standard of corporate
governance. The directors have the responsibility for the overall stewardship of the
association, establishing the overall policies and standards for the association. The current
list of the Board of Directors is available on the association‟s website. An Executive
Director reports to the Board and is responsible for operations management, financial
management, communications and general administrative duties. In order to streamline
operations and minimize costs, PCPSA shares an office in Ottawa with Consumer Health
Products Canada.
As required by regulation, PCPSA has operated a province-wide BC Medications Return
Program for prescriptions drugs, nonprescription drugs and natural health products since
April 1998.
The pharmaceutical product category is regulated in Canada under the Food and Drugs Act
and Regulations and the Natural Health Products Regulations. Unlike other programs
developed under the Recycling Regulation (Product Care, Electronics, Oil etc) the BC
Medications Return Program is fully funded by the health product industries.

PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
4. Stakeholder Consultation [Section 5 (1) (b)]
The producer has undertaken satisfactory consultation with stakeholders prior to
submitting the plan for approval and will provide opportunity for stakeholder input in the
implementation and operation of the product stewardship program.
For the first time ever, stakeholders were invited to attend joint public consultation
meetings for the review of four BC product stewardship plans: Tire Stewardship BC, the
Electronic Stewardship Association of BC, Product Care Association and the PostConsumer Pharmaceutical Stewardship Association.
The joint consultation sessions were held as follow:
• Prince George - Wednesday May 25, 2011 – Ramada Inn
• Kelowna - Friday May 27, 2011 – Coast Capri Hotel
• Nanaimo - Monday May 30, 2011 – Coast Bastion Inn
• New Westminster - Tuesday May 31, 2011 – Inn at the Quay
People could register online at bcstewardconsultations.ca and could download a copy of the
product stewardship plans from each agency`s website. PCPSA`s stewardship plan was
posted by May 5th and available for public comment and the deadline for submission of
written comments on PCPSA‟s plan was June 17, 2011.
Advance notifications were sent out on April 18th to 329 common stakeholders such as
senior government, stewardship associations, ENGOs including RCBC, regional districts
and municipalities. A notice was also sent to PCPSA`s members, collection sites on May
15th. A total of 84 individuals participated in the four consultation sessions and eight
written submissions were received by the deadline.
PCPSA‟s presentation at the consultation sessions provided an overview of the Plan as well
as opportunities to ask questions and provide feedback. Appendix 5 provides a summary of
the questions and comments received and where possible, like comments have been
grouped together for ease of response. In doing so, we have tried to maintain the essence of
the public‟s input without distortion.

PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
5. Medications Return Program- overview
The collection sites for the BC Medications Return Program are community pharmacies.
Pharmacy managers interested in participating must complete a registration form. Details
on the program are provided to ensure that management and their staffs are knowledgeable
on the program and its operation. All participating community pharmacies receive
information with instructions on the program, order form and containers (Appendix 1).
Once the registration form is completed and faxed to our office, the pharmacist is contacted
by phone to discuss the following points:






The program is for returns from the public.
Large quantities from individuals are acceptable.
All dry health products can be dropped directly into the plastic container, including
blister packs and inhalers in their original package
All liquid products are accepted, they are not to be poured into the container.
This program does not accept sharps, needles and syringes.
All extra packaging should be removed; including personal information.
Once the container is full, the pharmacist contacts the program administrator to schedule a
delivery and pick up. All containers received from a pharmacy are tracked by weight,
pickup date and location and re-packaged for safe destruction through a licensed
incineration facility.

PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
a) Pharmacies [Section 5 (1)(c)(iii)]
The plan adequately provides for reasonable and free consumer access to collection facilities
Since 2000, we increased the number of registered pharmacies from 575 to 1,025,
representing 94.5% of licensed community pharmacies in the province. PCPSA provides
promotional items (posters, brochures, flyers, etc.) for display and has developed a news
bulletin circulated in the spring and fall (Appendix 2). There is no charge to the consumer
to return products. Community pharmacies currently participating in the program can be
easily located by the public on the Association‟s website at www.medicationssreturn.ca or
by accessing the Recycle Council of British Columbia Encyclopedia at http://rcbc.bc.ca/. In
addition:




Pharmacies are a natural, logical and safe site for the public to return health products.
They also offer easy access to those with special needs and varying degrees of personal
mobility.
Pharmacists are very knowledgeable about dispensing health products and do provide
advice on individual medical condition and proper use of health products.
Many of these pharmacies are open during extended hours, offering a convenient place
for consumer disposal year-round.
The following lists provide an example of materials that would be acceptable. Note that this
list is not exhaustive.
Accepted
 All prescription drugs
 Nonprescription health products
 Natural health products
 Vitamin and mineral supplements
Not accepted
 Sharps, needles or syringes
 Cosmetics
 Antiperspirants, antiseptic
 Skin cleansers
 Mouthwashes
 Hard surface and disinfectant cleaners
 Expired samples from physicians‟
offices
 Unused or expired drugs from
hospitals and institutions
 Pharmaceuticals from farms and
veterinary products

b) Program administrator
The PCPSA contracts with a program administrator for the following.




Maintain and update database on participating community pharmacies
Collection of expired and unused health products from pharmacies
Storage and disposal of products
Ensuring all necessary environmental permits and licenses are obtained
c) Funding
 To ensure that brand-owners/producers who sell, offer for sale or distribute health
products in British Columbia are covering their share of the costs to the Program.
Funding from the industry covers all expenses incurred in the collection, transportation,
storage, promotion and disposal of products within the BC program.
The cost of operating the BC Medications Return Program is shared between brand owners
of health products (prescriptions drugs and natural health products). Updated lists of
participating brand-owners are also published on the Association‟s website. Yearly reviews
are done to identify and confirm brand-owners/producers selling health products in British
Columbia (Appendix 3).
Prescription Drugs
The fee to brand owners of prescription drugs is based on all products dispensed in British
Columbia in the previous calendar year. The minimum rate is $200.00 + applicable taxes.
Natural Health Products/OTC‟s
The rate to brand owners for over-the-counter drugs and natural health products is based on
sales in previous calendar year at $0.20 per $1,000 of BC sales of affected natural health
products. The minimum rate is $200.00 + applicable taxes.

PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
6. Educational Materials and Strategies
 To ensure citizens know where and how to dispose of unused or expired medications
when necessary.
a) Publicity
The program has posters, brochures, flyers, bookmarks, etc. that can quickly be supplied to
participating pharmacies, special events or other associates such as Regional District Service
offices and municipalities. The brochures provide clear directions on what is accepted and
not accepted, how to return the unused or expired health products and where returns are
accepted in an easy fashion. PCPSA offers its support to health awareness events and health
trade shows with advertising responsible disposal of unused or expired health products.
b) Printed materials
Take-aways: Brochures and point of purchase signage is distributed to pharmacies and other
locations such as clinics and doctor‟s offices through a reorder system by fax, email or
through the website. Brochures are presently available in English, while bookmarks are
available in four languages (English, French, Punjabi and Chinese).
Municipal Garbage and Recycling calendars: PCPSA will continue to promote the
Medications Return Program in the recycling calendar published by regional districts and
municipalities informing residents about municipal services.
Mailouts: PCPSA will provide promotional material to regional districts and municipalities
or other groups/organizations interested in promoting the program.
A News bulletin is currently available on a quarterly basis to our members. We also have a
bi-annual e-bulletin for the community pharmacy managers.
Local Newspapers: PCPSA has produced articles in community newspapers promoting the
Medications Return Program. Other initiatives are taking place during the Pharmacist
Awareness Week and other health related events during the year.
c) Other resources
Web Site: The medicationsreturn.ca website provides the public with information on the
program and locations of collection sites for the disposal of health products. The site also
provides a searchable database of participating pharmacies and details on products accepted
by the program.
As we continue to build our membership base, we are able to utilize our members‟ own
promotional network to advertize the Medications Return Program. These initiatives are
described in Annual Reports.
10
PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
RCBC Toll-Free and Recyclopedia: PCPSA has partnered with the Recycling Council of
British Columbia recycling hotline service and sponsored the newly expended on-line
recycling information database called Recyclopedia.
Consumer information: Information on the safe use, storage and disposal is provided to the
consumer at the time of purchase.
PCPSA sends regular updates to regional districts and municipalities including key messages
and logos that can be used to promote safe disposal of unused or expired health products.
7. Program Performance Measurement
The Regulation requires that the plan make adequate provisions for informing consumers
of the producer‟s product stewardship program, the location of collection facilities and
how to handle products in a safe manner as well as the environmental and economic
benefits of participating in the program.
While we agree that recovery rate can provide a way to measure program success, the
recovery/capture rate is not a meaningful performance measure for health products in
determining the effectiveness of this stewardship plan. As a result, PCPSA will evaluate the
success of the program through the following five categories: awareness indicators,
accessibility indicators, quantity collected, promotion indicators and waste composition
studies. The Program has been tracking and reporting on many of these key indicators since
2006.
a) Consumer awareness [Section 5 (1) (c) (iv)]
A consumer awareness survey was developed in 2007 and used again in September 2010,
and shows significant improvements in both consumer behavior and awareness of the
program (Appendix 4: Full report).
Awareness Indicators
Target until 2017:
Increase public awareness by 25% and usage of Program
by 10%:

e) Waste composition studies
We have joined with the BC Stewards Group to formalize a working partnership with
Regional Districts to conduct detailed waste audits to determine the makeup of the waste
stream. It is anticipated that the reports derived from these audits will be analyzed and used
by stewards as one of many tools to establish the effectiveness of their programs in
accordance with the requirements of the Recycling Regulation. The resulting information
will assist the partners in achieving the long-term goal of zero waste
For the Regional Districts that conduct waste composition studies, these studies should be
statistically significant to establish the presence of health products within the Household
Hazardous Waste categories.
Waste Composition Study
Target until 2017:

14
PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
8. Compliance Process
Compliance process and enforcement measures are central to ensure full compliance of all
obligated parties. For the purposes of initiating actions with the British Columbia Ministry of
Environment; non-compliance is defined as a lack of responsiveness from a brandowner/producer after more than two notices on producers‟ responsibilities have been sent
from PCPSA. Exceptions can be made if the Board determines that the producer/brandowner is not covered by the regulations (excluded products) or fees are paid by a third party.
In the event that PCPSA does not receive a financial contribution from stewards within the
prescribed timeframe(s), PCPSA management may utilize the following notifications to
underscore the importance of timely submission:
 1st contact (60 days prior): Letter is sent to obligate stewards under the Recycling
Regulation, informing them of their responsibilities. PCPSA‟s role is to advise
any potential stewards and offer the approved Medications Return Program as a
way to fulfill their regulatory requirements.
 2nd contact (90 days): A second letter is sent to a steward for lack of reply from
the previous correspondence. At this point in time, PCPSA will point out that they
are liable if their company contravenes the Act.
 3rd contact (120 days): A final letter with a deadline for submitting membership
documents and payments toward the plan is sent by PCPSA. At this point, the
Board will consider each steward on a case-by-case basis to approve final step.
 4th contact: A request for non-compliance actions is sent to the Ministry of
Environment with a copy to the steward.
15
PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
9. Dispute Resolution [Section 5 (1) (c) (vi)]
The Recycling Regulation requires that a plan provide for a dispute resolution procedure.
Any person or organization believing that the responsibilities of parties participating in the
Medications Return Program do not meet the program plan should immediately provide a
detailed description of the complaint to PCPSA:
By e-mail to [email protected]
By fax to 613-723-0779
By phone to 613-723-7282
PCPSA will within five days seek to resolve the dispute through a co-operative approach and
voluntary resolution. In the absence of a successful resolution, PCPSA will convene a
threeparty adjudication panel within two weeks. One individual will be chosen by PCPSA,
one individual chosen by the pharmacy and one individual chosen by the complainant (not
the complainant). The panel will consider the dispute and offer a binding decision on all
parties involved. Should the decision not be accepted, legal recourse is available to the
complainant.
10.
Pollution prevention hierarchy [Section 5(1)(c)(viii)]
The pollution prevention hierarchy (recycle, recover, residual disposal) requirements outlined
in the Recycling Regulation to reduce the environmental impact of health products are not
feasible without affecting pharmaceutical product safety, efficacy, and quality. Health
products are consumable products. Health products are taken for specific conditions or
symptoms and should be fully consumed unless otherwise indicated by a health professional.
Health products cannot be reused or recycled, as other products covered under this
regulation. Some manufacturers/producers have been able to give excess health products with
adequate shelf life (usually 6 months) for humanitarian use. This unique situation eliminates
or reduces a product that is consumable; however it does not apply to products that have been
purchased by a consumer.
Products collected under this program will be disposed through incineration at governmentapproved facilities. A certificate of destruction, as well as 3rd party verification is obtained.
11.
Environmental impact throughout product lifecycle [Section 5 (1) (c) (v)]
Over the last 5 years, members have undertaken environmental initiatives that have improved
the environmental impact of health products. As a performance measure, individual stewards
have also made some changes to product monograms which reflect the program‟s ability to
influence change in a positive manner. Product Monograms (patient medication information
16
PCPSA 2012 -2016 Program Plan
sheer) are starting to indicate safe disposal options (appendix 7). In addition, since 2010, all
MRP containers have been replaced with reusable 30 L containers.
PCPSA has also partnered with some chains (Shoppers Drug Mart) to distribute paper bags to
help with medicine cabinet clean-up and reduce the impact of pharmaceuticals entering the
environment. This medications return campaign will be evaluated.
12.
Waste Disposal Sites
It is not appropriate for health products to be returned with other household hazardous waste
and handled by individuals not used to handling health products. PCPSA prefers that health
products are returned to a pharmacy location. Pharmacies are more knowledgeable in
handling health products and offer a secure environment for safe disposal.
PCPSA only partners with licensed service providers with a proven record of using
established, approved and verifiable procedures for the final treatment and processing of
residuals in compliance with all applicable environmental regulations.
13.
Annual Report
On or before July 1 each year the Association shall submit to the Director a report of the
Association‟s activities for the preceding calendar year. The report will document the
performance in relation to the plan. The report will also be available on the Association‟s
web site.

Appendix 4 Population Survey
POPULATION SURVEY
This summary provides an overview of a survey undertaken with 509 adult British
Columbians in September 2010.

Ninety percent of British Columbians report that they have health products in their home,
including 30% who have unused or expired health products.

Without prompting, almost one-half of British Columbians (48%) are able to identify
pharmacies as a place where consumers may dispose of unwanted health products. This is
up significantly from 31% in 2007.

Asked directly whether health products may be returned to a pharmacy, 60% of British
Columbians say they may. About one half (51%) of British Columbians claim they were
aware of this before completing the survey.

Thirty-three percent of British Columbians say they have disposed of health products in
the last six months. This marks a 10% decrease since 2007.

Since 2007, there has been a remarkable increase in the percentage of British Columbians
who returned their unwanted health products to pharmacies. This percentage has more than
doubled, from 21% to 51%. There has also been a large corresponding decline in the use of
garbage to dispose of health products.

Three-quarters of all British Columbians who claim to be aware that pharmacy disposal is
an option actually used this option the last time they had unwanted health products. Thus,
awareness is a very powerful driver of behavior in British Columbia.

Among those British Columbians who disposed of health products at a pharmacy, the
experience was both convenient (93% agree) and satisfactory (94% agree).

Unprompted, 43% of British Columbians say they would return health products to a
pharmacy in the future (up 19 points since 2007), while 51% would use either the regular
garbage or a household drain (down 17 points since 2007).

When prompted, the overwhelming majority of British Columbians (86%) say they would
be likely to use pharmacy disposal if it were available. Specifically, 70% say they are very
likely to use a pharmacy and 16% say they are somewhat likely.

There are no major barriers in the minds of consumers to using pharmacies to dispose of
unwanted health products. More than two-thirds of consumers (69%) say they can see no
reason why they would not use a pharmacy for this purpose. For most others, the potential
barriers are convenience, distance, laziness or forgetfulness.
26
Appendix 5 Stakeholder consultation summary

From a demographic perspective, women are generally more aware and more active in the
proper disposal of health products. Older consumers are also more aware and more
proactive.

Appendix 5 Stakeholder consultation summary
We have distilled four hours of discussion and eight written comments into the following
table.
Terminology
Comment/Questions
Term medication is misleading as natural health
products are not considered medications.
Answer
The expression health product is frequently
accompanied by additional clarification such
as: including prescription drugs,
nonprescription drugs and natural health
products.
„Consumer health product‟ should be replaced, or
natural health product should be explicitly stated.
This program was established before Health
Canada created (in the nineties) a separate
regulatory framework for natural health
products.
Based on consultation, we will add in the
glossary:
Term “consumer health products” not clearly
understood to consumers
Consumer health products: health products
sold to consumers.
Health products: prescription drugs,
nonprescription drugs and natural health
products.
Natural health products:
Vitamins and minerals
Herbal remedies
Homeopathic medicines
Traditional Chinese medicines
Probiotics
Other products like amino acids and
essential fatty acids

Appendix 6 Participating Pharmacies
Expand range of products to include hospitals,
doctor‟s office, institutions, farms and veterinary
products.
Packaging/containers
Can the stewards in the natural health industry meet
the requirements of the regulation by only providing
education to the public about safe disposal options?
Will there be a program in place for packaging?
B.C. regulations exempts those sectors
Vials and packaging are excluded from the
program plan. This program was established
to provide a safe disposal options for
medications through pharmacies; Public is
encouraged to bring in medications in original
container and place medications in our
containers. The original regulatory obligation
referred to the product and not the packaging.
Recommend to pharmacies and the public to
recycle the containers.
Public education is only one component. Also
need a collection system that follows the 5 Rs.
A public education program, on its own,
would not meet the requirements of the
regulation.
Yes, they will be included in the new
packaging and printed materials program that
was just announced this week.

Collection
Answer
31
Appendix 6 Participating Pharmacies
Comment/Questions
What assurance can be provided or checks and
balances are in place to ensure that pre-consumer
damaged products, whose disposal is paid for as part
of a commercial transaction between the vendor and
the retailer, are not disposed of through the postconsumer mechanism and hence double paid for by
suppliers of natural health products.
CHFA strongly recommends that the option to act as
a collection location for natural health products be
expanded beyond pharmacies to include all locations
for where natural health products are sold.
There is no need to involve a pharmacist for
unscheduled natural health products
Add clarity that damaged pre-consumer goods as a
result of normal retail and distribution practices are
not accepted into the return program described in this
document
Independent Health food Stores should also be
specifically listed
Unused or expired drugs from hospitals and
institutions are excluded from the program
Is there a diversion rate target?
Numbers that are returned that are natural health
products versus prescription drugs?
Do weights in per-capita figures include weights of
containers?
Is there a financial incentive for pharmacies to
participate?
I have never been told when I purchase drugs that the
unused medications can be returned.
How does the BC collected numbers compare to other
provinces?
If 10-15% of medication is unused, how much of that
We do verify containers to ensure compliance
both with product definition
(cosmetics)/consumer returns vs pharmacy
waste (stale dated product).
Suppliers are not funding the program, only
brand owners.
PCPSA advocates community pharmacies for
the public to return unused or expired health
products. Nonetheless, we have expanded our
collection sites to other locations such as
clinics, health center and, hospitals when
applicable. New locations are assessed based
on completing an application form available
on our website at www.medicationsreturn.ca .
That is correct; however the program covers a
wide range of products in addition to NHP‟s.
80% of products returned are prescription
drugs.
Clarification on acceptable products is found
in the protocol and agreement, provided upon
registration. Appendix 1
All registered collection sites are listed,
regardless of type of business.
B.C. Regulation exempts these sectors.
No. Only consumer access, consumer
awareness, and % of people that have used the
program. Report on quantity collected by
regional district.
Survey indicated 80% prescription drugs
versus 20% consumer health products,
including natural health products.
Yes, a small percentage of packaging with
liquids, gels, powder etc ,
No, there is no financial incentive.
Participation is fully voluntary.
Drugs are generally prescribed for a specific
treatment period and should be used
completely. Education and outreach inform
the public of medications return programs.
The other comparable programs in Canada are
Alberta and Manitoba. Other international
programs collect different products. BC
collection is currently in line with Alberta but
we will have to wait until 2012 to compare
with Manitoba.
All numbers are estimates only. Therefore this

calculation is difficult to perform.
Want a performance measure that allows current
collection rate to compare to what is available for
collection.
Waste audit in CO showed diversion rate of about
4%. Lowest of all EPR programs. Doesn‟t even show
stuff that was put down the drain. Need way more
communications. Maybe door to door would be
required.
Can‟t compare what is sold (in units) to what
is returned (in kg).
What was the change in relation to the containers in
2009?
Disposal/Incineration
Comment/Questions
There is no research that shows that it is necessary to
incinerate natural health products vs. composting
There is no literature or research that suggests that
NHPs are dangerous to the environment. NHPs can be
recycled in other manners (composted as an example)
or can be given to friends/family unlike prescription
pharmaceuticals (since they don‟t require a
prescription).
A separate assessment of NHPs entering the
environment should also be conducted/reviewed prior
to the inclusion of these products in this program.
What science suggests it is harmful to handle natural
health products, or that they are harmful to the
environment?
All product stewardship programs should include
disposal hierarchy on the material collected.
I would have to look at the methodology used
to identify health products to comment.
However, when comparing BC results with
other programs such as Alberta, Ontario,
Australia, Spain, UK, our recovery per capita
at .0134 kg is lower but within a 20 % range.
Changed containers from single use to reusable. The public encouraged to bring in
health products in original container, place it
in container and encourage pharmacy to
recycle the container. Regulatory obligation
refers to the medication, not the packaging.
Answer
We do not separate returns; all dry
medications are placed in our containers
regardless of type and chemicals ingredients.
Not all NHP‟s are suitable for composting,
similar to not all health products present a
danger to the environment.
This program is for safe disposal of health
products and has no specific recommendation
for recycling or reuse of any products.
We have no information suggesting that
composting/recycling is a viable option.
Substance division for new substance
notification regulation applies to NHP‟s.
The program is intended to assist the public
with responsible disposal of all health
products, including products that have been
deemed safe for human health and the
environment. This program was not designed
to educate the public on product safety but to
offer an alternative to flushing or throwing in
the garbage.
The pollution prevention hierarchy (recycle,
recover, residual disposal requirements
outlined in the Recycling Regulation is not
feasible without affecting pharmaceutical
product safety, efficacy, and quality. There are
very few licensed facilities (3) capable of
handling health products. All products are
33
Appendix 6 Participating Pharmacies
Fee
Comment/Questions
This document should clearly articulate a fee and
category for NHPs so as to not mislead consumers.
An across the board minimum fee unfairly penalizes
small businesses and the thousands of multi-level
marketing companies or direct sellers who import into
the province and sell small quantities of natural health
products. We recommend that no fee be payable for
those companies whose sales of captured products are
less than $1 million (a person who sells $5,000 worth
of product vs. $1 million worth of product and both
pay $200 is unfair).
We support the funding ;mechanism for the program,

disposed through incineration In 2012; we

recovered represent less than 1 % of the total
load destroyed yearly.
Answer
There is no fee to the consumer.
Companies that are doing business in Canada
under their own private label with products
captured under the definition are rarely under
the $1 million threshold. Retailers/ suppliers
unless they own their private label, are not
charged a fee.
Fees are reviewed by the board (elected by the
members); members can request changes to
the revenue model.

Answer
All request for printed material are assessed;
including doctor‟s office
Outline the events that have been considered that
include natural health products.
Events are listed in the annual report available
on our website at www.medicationsreturn.ca
Adopt Results based goal
Changes were made as recommended
Clarify the target
Changes were made as recommended public
awareness to 60% and usage of the program to
61%.
A newsletter to individual pharmacies to
remind them of what is included is now part
the program plan. New brochures for
pharmacy will be available in2012.
PCPSA is working with the BC Pharmacists
Association and a marketing firm in
promoting the program to pharmacists. Yearly
campaigns to engage the pharmacist‟s
community and clear messages on the benefit
of the program have been develop. Additional
financial resources have been allocated to
further engage pharmacists.
Pharmacies are often the weak link, and don‟t know
about the program. Do you anticipate a program to
educate front line staff?
Actively engage pharmacists as ambassadors of the

medications.
One of our objectives is to ensure pharmacists
do understand the scope of the program,
however, following therapy is not one of our
responsibilities.
Training material for pharmacy staff
Already available with pharmacy with
protocol and agreement. Appendix 2
Consider training pharmacists on the environmental
health hazard associated with improperly disposing of
medications down the toilet or in the garbage
Expand the range of communications tools.
This is part of the ongoing joint effort with the
BCPhA and the BC college of Pharmacists.
Product monographs (patient information
sheet) have been changing to include
instruction for disposal.
Do not flush medications down the drain or
pour them into a drain unless instructed to do
so. Properly discards this product when it is
expired or no longer needed. Consult your
pharmacists or local waste disposal company
for more details about how to safely discard
your product.
Since material is so easy to throw away and put down
the drain, perhaps it needs door to door service.
Survey shows that people still throw away, despite no
barriers.
Product Recovery Target
Comment/Questions
Work with local government to develop a target
related to the amount of medications disposed of
through solid waste and sewerage systems.
Conduct regular waste audit
If sale triple is the tonnage still appropriate target.
Social media contest for short video on health
products safety was initiated in 2011. Video
on our website at medicationsreturn.ca.
People‟s behavior changes over time. The
2010 survey results shows progress in both
awareness and usage. We will continue to
reach out with promotion and educational
material.
Answer
PCPSA along with the BC Stewards, the
Ministry and some RD‟s representatives are
working on municipal solid waste
characterisation project to facilitate reliable
municipal solid waste characterisation studies
through use of a standardised tool.
Recovery rate with consumable products such
as health products is not necessarily related to
sales. The rate of increase of prescriptions
dispensed in Canada have decrease from 7.4%
in 2007 to 4.5% in 2010.

Appendix 6 Participating Pharmacies
Program is very low profile. Don‟t see posters,
communications etc.
Program is low volume when compared with
other programs. Percent of people who have
reported using it is high.
Is there a diversion rate target?
Need to be able to evaluate what you are missing.
We are reporting on consumer access and
consumer awareness, and % of people that
have used the program in the past 6 months
with full report on quantity collected by
regional districts.
Answer
Consumer awareness
Comment/Questions
Is consumer awareness determined through prompted
or unprompted questions
September Ipso Reid survey questions were:
A) Can you name any specific places or
facilities where consumers can dispose of
their unwanted or expired medications?
(Unprompted) 48% pharmacies
B) As far as you know, can unwanted and
expired medications can be returned to a
pharmacy near you for safe disposal? 60%
reported yes
Promotion
Comment/Questions
Concerns the options for promotion rely solely on
regional districts and municipalities to convey
message.
Increase public promotion; social marketing
Signage at entrance of pharmacy
Answer
Stickers.
Information advising of return options with packaging
Products Monogram, are starting to indicate
safe disposal options (appendix 7 )
Visible signage in Dr offices, clinics, care facilities
etc.
Added to the plan under Promotion:
Connect with other health professionals such
as nurses and home care personnel
We have used BCPhA promotion during
Pharmacists Awareness Week in March to
promote the program for the past 3 years.
Answer
Well promoted events should be done for this
program.
Misc.
Comment/Questions
How do you ensure privacy of information on labels
etc ?
Any outreach to trade schools and universities to talk
with those being trained in the profession
Strategies to reach beyond those markets will
be address by contracting out marketing and
promotion to suitable agency.
Display signage on the MRP will be available
to registered sites.
Program instructs public to remove personal
information. Pharmacy code of conduct
requires them to remove or overwrite
information (like with a black marker) before
they can be discarded.
Yes, we advertise in the pharmacists
