GSK is launching the first, UK-wide recycling and recovery scheme for all respiratory inhalers to reduce the harmful environmental impact associated with landfill disposal. With 73 million inhalers dispensed a year… that’s a whole lot of rubbish and waste.
Through the proposed scheme, the pieces that make up the inhalers can be recovered, allowing patients to breathe new life into their old inhalers. By working together with patients, pharmacies and healthcare professionals GSK intends to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions to move towards a more environmentally sustainable treatment of respiratory disease.
To make the scheme as user friendly as possible, GSK would like some feedback from you, the potential users of this service, before the launch of this service in February 2013. The survey’s aim is to collect all the information you might require to easily recycle your old or unwanted inhaler.
