Medical Equipment & Surplus

Medical equipment includes machinery and tools for medical use.

Organizations are most able to accept reusable working equipment in good condition that can be cleaned and new/unused single-use materials in packaging. Corporate donations can find an accredited Medical Surplus Recovery Organization here and donate products to them.
