Bring Back the Pack to London Drugs
London Drugs is one of the stores I frequent most often because they carry a lot of green products that other stores don’t. And the prices are often a lot better than an organic store. But it’s not just about the shopping – did you know that there are tons of things you can bring back to London Drugs for recycling and safe disposal?
It’s true! Check out their Green Deal sustainability story to see what they accept for recycling, where it goes and what’s done with it. I love that they are so transparent about what they’re doing. Learn about how they are diverting over 93% of store waste from landfills, what you can bring to recycle and where it goes, and their mission for Zero Waste.
Here’s the shortlist on what you can bring back to London Drugs:
- Small Appliances
- Packaging from our products including Styrofoam
- Plastic Bags
- Insurance Plastic Folders
- Alkaline Batteries
- Cell Phones
- Rechargeable Batteries
- Compact Fluorescent Bulbs & Fluorescent Light Tubes (up to 48”)
- Disposable Cameras
- Ink jet Cartridges
- Laser Cartridges
- Metal Film Canisters
- Unused & Expired Medications (bring back to the pharmacy)
I brought back a bunch of inkjet cartridges. Even though there may not be a specific drop box for all of these items, the staff are very helpful and will ensure your stuff gets put in the right place to get recycled.
What will you bring back to London Drugs this Earth Month?

Does it have to be something you bought at London Drugs or anything?
No it doesn’t!! Only packaging (like the box and styrofoam etc) from something needs to be bought at London Drugs. But otherwise you can bring back stuff you purchased elsewhere – cell phones, batteries, ink cartridges, etc – no limits on where you got it from!
