Chemists' Own® Blister Pack Free Recycling Program

Recycle any brand of used over-the-counter blister packs

Discover Our Recycling Process

Once received, the blister packs are separated into aluminium and plastics, and cleaned. Metals and aluminium are shredded and smelted into metal sheeting, ingots, or bar stock. Plastics are size-reduced (made smaller by being shredded or ground), then melted and reformatted into pellets, flakes, or a powder format.
