Old & Outdated Medicines

Old medicines can be disposed of at any time during normal pharmacy hours. Simply take them to one of the two participating drug stores in Peru and they will dispose of your old medicines in accordance with all applicable local, state, and federal regulations. They will give you back your pill bottle when empty.

This program is for human medicines only and is not for business use. Controlled substances not accepted.
