Partnering with You to Protect Our Environment

Protecting the environment has never been easier. Everything shipped to you with your prescription can be returned and recycled. Octapharma’s Care for Your World recycling service ensures you can dispose of your sharps, other infusion supplies, and the packaging and shipping materials associated with your Rx, not just safely, but with positive environmental impact – 100% of what you return is repurposed into an industrial material used to generate electricity for homes and businesses! It’s painless and it’s responsible.

Let’s make a difference together. Similar programs have helped divert over 11.9 million pounds of waste from landfills, leading to the reduction of over 5,950 tons of CO2-equivalent greenhouse gasses, and generating enough electricity to power over 5,000 homes a month!1

We're proud to offer this complimentary recycling service to patients.

Earn IgCares Points

How to Recycle

1. Receive Rx and Recycling Materials

When you join the Care for Your World recycling service, you will receive:

These will include prepaid, pre-labeled return shipping boxes for returning all of your infusion materials to the recycling facility. Detailed recycling instructions will also be included.

2. Dispose After Infusion

Once you have completed your infusion, place your used needles and other biohazardous materials in the sharps disposal container. Place everything else including your packing and shipping materials in the other recycling carton.

3. Package Up Materials

When your sharps container and packing material container are nearly full, package everything according to the instructions provided in the original recycling packages you received.

4. Ship Return Materials

Ship the packages back to the recycling center following the printed instructions provided in the original recycling packages you received. The instructions are also available on the Recycling Guide page of the IgCares member portal.
