Inhalers

Can you recycle?

Inhalers can’t be recycled from home but you can take them to pharmacies which participate in the national ‘Complete the Cycle’ recycling and recovery scheme for inhalers.

Find out where your nearest participating pharmacy is located and hand in your empty, out of date or unused inhalers. The inhalers are collected as part of routine deliveries, so no extra miles are travelled, and are then taken to be sorted for recycling or recovery. Recovery means using the non-recyclable parts of the inhaler to generate energy.
