We often are left with equipment that we only use for a short time when we are incapacitated or if a relative goes into care or dies we may find ourselves with equipment that is no longer required.  What should we do with those crutches, commodes, zimmer frames?

It is always worth contacting the hospital you obtained the equipment from to see if it can be recycled.  There are also places across the country where it can be formally recycled.
