Abstract: The management of pharmaceutical waste is increasingly becoming of great concern to our society since no official program currently exists. This study proposes a management plan for consumer’s pharmaceutical waste in a pharmacy setting in Malta. It involves disposing of unwanted solid dosage-forms in their original packaging in waste containers which will be installed in front of pharmacies, and returning hazardous medicines and other dosage-forms directly to the pharmacist to reduce hazards from mixing incompatible products.
