Pharmacy: Recycling Pharmacy Vials

Over 50 Million Vials Recycled

Our recycling efforts don’t stop at paper and plastic. Customers can also recycle their Publix Pharmacy vials with us. Once your vial is empty, please remove the label with your personal information and return it to the pharmacy desk. In 2018 alone, our customers returned more than 8.2 million Publix Pharmacy vials for recycling. Our vial manufacturer directly recycles them into the production of new ones, which has enabled us to repurpose over 50 million vials since 2011. We also recycle our pharmacy inventory bottles.
