Hearing aids are not collected as part of your local recycling collection or at household waste and recycling centres.
However, they are often collected for charity at a variety of places…
What can I do with them?
Collection points for hearing aids can often be found at:
- Doctors surgeries;
- Hospital audiology departments;
- Private hearing specialists;
- Some charity shops i.e. Help the Aged and Age Concern.
These collections are usually charity based. Donated hearing aids are repaired, refurbished and sent overseas for re-use in developing countries. Batteries for hearing aids are also wanted.
