AEDs are close to 30 years old which means that many organizations are on their 2nd or 3rd generation of life-saving Automated External Defibrillators or AEDs. But what do you do with your old AEDs? How do you dispose of them responsibly so as to not endanger the environment with the lithium powered batteries? AED One-Stop Shop and our partners at purchaseAEDs.com are proud to continue our FREE AED Recycling and Disposal Program.
#AEDRecycle accepts the following Automated External Defibrillator types: LIFEPAK, Philips HeartStart, ZOLL, Defibtech Lifeline ReviveR, Cardiac Science Powerheart, Physio-Control, Medtronic, Welch Allyn, Cintas, HeartStream ForeRunner and Laerdal.
Here are the easy steps:
Contact an AED Consultant at AED One-Stop Shop at Sales@AEDOneStopShop.com or 855-677-2337 option 1 for clarification about which items should be shipped and which non-hazardous items and can be disposed of.
Remove the batteries from your AEDs and pack them in boxes or other suitable packaging. It is okay to include all the parts such as the AED devices, carrying cases, batteries, pads and rescue kits.
Ship to AED One-Stop Shop via only ground shipment as the lithium batteries are typically prohibited from being shipped by air transportation.
Customers are responsible for the shipping charges but do not incur any processing or disposal fees.
