Mobility Equipment Recycling Scheme
During the past decade mobility and other independent living products have become more readily available. Increased consumer demand and mass production has led to lower prices, higher quality and more choice. Adversely, itís not surprising that we are now seeing more items discarded in general household waste, refuse centres and landfill sites.
In response we launched an innovative scheme which recovers, recycles and reuses electric mobility scooters and wheelchairs, manual wheelchairs, crutches, wheeled and framed walkers. Donated equipment, once restored, is used in our Shopmobility fleet and independent living equipment loan services. Surplus goods are sold on at affordable prices from our Shopmobility service located in the Golden Square car park, accessed from Legh Street.
Prices start from:
- £10 for a perching stool
- £15 for a zimmer frame
- £25 for a three wheeled walker
- £35 for a four wheeled walker
- £50 for a manual wheelchair
- £199 for a powered wheelchair
- £199 for a three wheeled scooter
- £299 for a four wheeled scooter
In 2016 we launched the Phoenix Project in partnership wth St Mark Universal Copts Care. Through the Project we collect and refurbish new and used mobility and independant aids that are not required here in the UK but are vital to support disabled people across the world through St Mark approved projects.
