London Drugs’ Cory Muir takes to the TV airwaves to talk recycling and the Regina Grasslands Fall Recycle Event .
We are always very proud and excited when one of our own dedicated LD team members takes their passion for ‘green’ to the next level. This week it was Store Manager Cory Muir making an appearance on CTV’s Morning Live Regina, with a table full of recycling sidekicks.
Cory was highlighting some of the most important recyclables to keep out of landfill, including batteries, plastic bags and CFL light bulbs. He also wanted everyone in the Regina area to know about the first annual Fall Recycle event being held at our Grasslands store on September 24th.
“We are calling out to our customers to search the garage and basement for any item we recycle,” says Muir, “We will have a person from the city of Regina at our event to talk about the blue curb side recycle bins, specifically what can be placed in the bins and how customers can recycle other items at our store.”
That’s particularly important with some of the items people may not remember to recycle.
“A lot of people forget to recycle the small things, small appliances, batteries, light bulbs and Brita water filters to name a few, and unfortunately these end up in landfills,” Muir continues. He encourages everyone to gather up their recyclables and come on down. “We have had all sorts of items come in; old wooden console TV’s; VCR tapes; and from what we understand we are also one of the few places in Saskatchewan that takes microwaves for recycling.”
So if you live in the Regina area, come say hello. And bring down some recyclables of your own.

London Drugs accepts VHS tapes and other recorded media for recycling. (Maximum 16 per visit, with purchase*)
Whether it’s blurry old digital video footage of that trip to Vegas or a VHS copy of Meatballs II, getting rid of unwanted media can be a challenge. London Drugs is pleased to announce we are now able to offer our customers drop-off recycling for virtually all recordable media or media storage devices that London Drugs sells. Simply bring your tapes and media (maximum 16 items) to your local London Drugs Customer Service counter along with your receipt for purchase of like or new items.*
CD’s and DVD’s are shredded for recovery of the aluminum. Tapes are recycled through a waste-to-energy program, where they will be used to generate electricity. So don’t trash your old tapes. Bring them in and help keep more material out of our landfills.
*As we cannot accept unlimited amounts of material, we must limit our take-back to 16 items with the purchase of like or new items at our stores. This limit will help us offer this recycling service to more customers, rather than just to a few who bring in excess material.
