Great, gracias!
I am sadly mostly uni-lingual (only a little residual French in my brain), but I use Microsoft Translator with considerable success.

Here's some more links to national medicine return programs in Europe and Australia

          France  http://www.cyclamed.org/

          Spain http://www.sigre.es/

          Portugal http://www.valormed.pt/

          Australia http://www.returnmed.com.au/  (no translation to English needed, mostly ;-)

Canada's programs (provincial, not national) have a snazzy website updated this summer at:  http://www.medicationsreturn.ca/

If anyone knows names of, or has links to other medicine return programs please share with me.  I'm currently looking for Germany's program.
