Confiscation and Destruction of Domestic Pharmaceutical Waste Project

A cooperation protocol was signed between Besiktas Municipality and Istanbul Chamber of Pharmacists in the scope of Confiscation and Destruction of Domestic Pharmaceutical Waste Project.

Besiktas Mayor, Atty. Murat Hazinedar, and the President of EB 1. Regional Chamber of Pharmacists, Ahmet Semih Gungor, met for the project.

As trashed drugs are chemical substances, they mingle with nature and adversely affect human health and the environment. In order to combat with these negative conditions, a cooperation protocol was signed between Beşiktaş Municipality and Istanbul Chamber of Pharmacists under the name of Confiscation and Destruction of Domestic Pharmaceutical Waste Project.

Drugs mingled with nature through kitchen garbages can dissolve in water easily and mix with underground and surface waters. In this way, they can penetrate into human body through the food chain by entering the natural cycle.This causes health and environment problems.

Among these scientific facts, this project was an important step to protect the environment and human health through the cooperation protocol.
