The letter states: “As for detergents, pharmaceuticals and other chemicals, I agree we should do something about that.”

Indeed, I questioned that recently, so I phoned my local pharmacy, Thrifty’s at Cloverdale Avenue. I was told that they would take all my expired pharmaceuticals, including items like “Tiger Balm,” and dispose of them safely – at no cost to me.

In addition, Ellice Recycle accepts many household chemicals and Hartland Dump accepts many items at no cost.
