Through the ENVIRx Program, year round, pharmacists promote safe and effective drug use while giving Albertans an opportunity to return unused and expired medications to their community pharmacy. These medications are collected by pharmacies and destroyed in an environmentally friendly manner.

The ENVIRx Program is exclusive to RxA members.

ENVIRx Program 2022-2023

The ENVIRx Program experienced unprecedented volume last year due to public health vaccine SHARPS disposal. RxA is now facing inflationary pricing increases from the provider.  As of July 1, 2022, RxA’s container cost for destruction is increasing from $37.00/container to $45.00/container. While the ENVIRx fee has not increased in five years, this year the program limit will be changed to 20 containers. This is a nominal adjustment to ensure the long-term integrity of the program.

The ENVIRx fee will remain at $295 annually (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023).

ENVIRx Program Medication Disposal

  • $295 for up to 20 containers
  • $45.00/container for usage over 20 containers

Medication Disposal outside the ENVIRx Program

  • Ranges from approximately $75.00-$90.00/container
