Home Equipment Recycling Program

The Home Equipment Recycling Program has evolved as a way to rehome preloved equipment to new homes for people in need.

Over the years many of our generous clients have wanted to donate unwanted or preloved equipment they no longer need or use. We are only too aware of the amount of people in our community who may not have the financial means or government funding to access the necessary equipment they need following an injury, hospital admission, diagnosis or just because their health, safety or independence has declined.

We know, firsthand, how important it is to have the right equipment to be able to remain safe and independent at home and in the community.

Here at Access Therapy Services we are passionate about helping our environment and know how important it is to do our bit. All too often we heard of people taking unused equipment to the rubbish dump as they were unable to ‘donate’ it. We were sure that we could help to be the link between unwanted equipment and people in need. Through this program we are able to help reduce the stress on the environment by recycling used health equipment and prevent it going to land fill whilst helping people access much needed equipment at no charge.

The team at Access Therapy Services is committed to supporting our local community and we are proud to offer this free service to anyone in need. We will store unwanted equipment until someone needs it. Every piece of equipment is checked by an occupational therapist to ensure that there are no obvious signs of wear and tear.

We are unable to take responsibility for the equipment, for the way that it is used and or any injuries resulting from usage. We recommend that any equipment is used under the guidance or recommendation from a treating health professional and a service is performed to ensure equipment is in best working order.

If you have equipment you would like to donate or you are looking for a piece of equipment for yourself or a loved one contact Access Therapy Services on:
