Welcome to Sonoma County’s Medical Equipment Recycling Program, where we strive to make a difference in the lives of those in need by repurposing and redistributing gently used medical equipment throughout our community.

We understand that access to medical equipment can be a financial burden for many individuals and families. Our program aims to bridge that gap by offering a variety of medical equipment, including walkers, wheelchairs, hospital beds, and more, at little to no cost to those in need. Our program relies on the generosity of our community to donate their gently used medical equipment. With your donations, we are able to provide a variety of equipment options to those in need. Donating your unused medical equipment not only helps those in need but also helps reduce waste in our environment.

At Sonoma Counties Medical Equipment Recycling Program, we understand the importance of quality and safety when it comes to medical equipment. All donated equipment goes through a rigorous cleaning and testing process before being redistributed. Our program serves individuals of all ages and backgrounds, from infants to seniors. We understand that everyone’s needs are unique, and our team of knowledgeable staff is here to help you find the right equipment to fit your needs. We work closely with healthcare providers and social workers to ensure that those who need medical equipment the most are connected with our program.

In addition to our equipment redistribution program, we also offer a variety of educational resources to help individuals and their caregivers better understand how to use and maintain their medical equipment. Our volunteers will do their best to answer any questions you may have and provide guidance on how to use and care for your equipment properly. We believe that everyone deserves access to the medical equipment they need to live a healthy and independent life. By donating your unused medical equipment, you are helping us make a difference in the lives of those in need in our community. If you or someone you know is in need of medical equipment, please contact us today to see how we can help.

Thank you for your support of Sonoma Counties Medical Equipment Recycling Program. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in need.
