GlaxoSmithKline has introduced a new program to help consumers recycle their empty GSK respiratory inhalers and keep waste out of landfills. The Complete the Cycle program is the first of its kind in the pharmaceutical industry and is being offered to community-based retail pharmacies in 31 U.S. markets. Currently, inhalers may not be recycled by curbside recyclers and go to landfills.
