Recycle used hospital equipment

Any things like walking frames , crutches and other loan equipment should all be handed back to points like doctors surgeries or the hospital when no longer required and cleaned, sterilised and reused as they have started doing in the UK. There must be hundreds of items lying in garages/ cupboards and sheds around the island

Why the contribution is important

It would save buying new all the time when things like crutches are not required for long when people have an injury.

    There is a system but DHSC don't promote it sufficiently.
    They have a depot on the Kirby Farm Industrial Estate off Vicarage Road.

    I thought a small deposit in exchange for a redemption ticket.You get the deposit back when you return the item.

    Could it be refurbished by the disabled workshop - there are a growing number of disabled people on the island who want to work . Another idea is to use the prisoners at Jurby were not they looking for projects to contribute to society ?
