Return equipment and help others in need

Do you or someone you care for have items of care equipment borrowed from the county council’s service provider, Millbrook Healthcare, that you no longer use?

If so, you can now book an appointment and take unused items to any of the council’s Recycling Centres.

Items that can be refurbished and reused will help improve availability and assist people who are recovering or who need extra help to stay living independently in their own homes.

Reusing and recycling equipment is better for the environment, reduces the need for new equipment to be produced, and reduces our carbon footprint.

Find out which items can be returned on this link by typing in the article you wish to return.

If you have larger equipment or cannot access the drop off points, contact Millbrook Healthcare on 0345 127 2931 or email westsussexcontactus@millbrookhealthcare.co.uk to arrange collection.
