Recycle Unwanted / Used Inhalers

Inhalers commonly use powerful greenhouse gases which can cause environmental damage.

It is therefore important that used cannisters are disposed of safely.


Return unwanted/used inhalers to Castlegate Dispensary

We will safely dispose of your inhalers with other medicine waste.

Through our recycling scheme, the greenhouse gases that remain inside are destroyed, ensuring they don’t do harm to the environment.



Send unwanted/used inhalers to landfill.

Landfill disposal of inhalers is harmful to the environment.

Residual greenhouses gases within the canisters can be released in to the atmosphere causing harm to the environment.



Help save the planet! Recycle your inhaler

Recycling your inhaler is easy with Castlegate Dispensary!

Dispose of your unwanted used inhalers safely by:

  1. Dropping them off at our inhaler recycling point
  2. Handing them to your delivery driver during your next delivery
