Cascais Ambiente 80px

ACR+ member Cascais Ambiente has joined a campaign on the correct disposal of medicines and their packaging launched by VALORMED, management company for packaging waste and medicinal products in Portugal.  The campaign’s main objective is to give visibility to the consequences of the incorrect disposal of medicines and their packaging, and their impact on the environment. Out-of-use and expired packaging and medicines should be deposited in the VALORMED containers which are available in almost all pharmacies and already in many para-pharmacies in the country. According to VALORMED data for 2022, 1 300 tonnes of packaging and medicine waste will be collected. This is almost 5% higher compared to what was achieved in 2021.
