Disposing of unused prescription Drugs after post op surgery/ Chemo finishes

This is some info I got from my chemo team as am on my last cycle & was wondering how I disposed of any prescribed drugs that were unused either from post op or chemo.
I was advised if you take any unused silver packets containing the drugs to a Boots pharmacy they will dispose of any unused prescription drugs in the correct manner.
The nurse treating me said she had to do this for a relative recently.
Hope this helps if any was wondering like me how I correctly dispose of them.
Many thank


Any pharmacy will dispose of unused or out of date medication 😉
