Do you have medical equipment to donate?

The Maryland Department of Aging is providing durable medical equipment (DME) to Marylanders with
any illness, injury, or disability, regardless of age, at no cost. All equipment is collected via
donation and is sanitized, repaired, and redistributed to Marylanders in need.
This service will improve the quality of life for many Maryland residents and provides the
opportunity to avoid costlier levels of care. Visit the Maryland Department of Aging DME Program here. 

Equipment Available:
Many residents of Maryland require the use of durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs,
walkers, shower chairs, and other assistive devices, in order to maintain their safety and
mobility. Often the cost of this equipment is a financial burden, not only to uninsured residents,
but also to insured residents whose insurance will not approve the equipment needed or whose
approval is delayed. To address this need, the Maryland Department of Aging has developed an
innovative program to provide durable medical equipment to Maryland residents. Maryland Durable
Medical Equipment Re-Use will serve Marylanders with any illness, injury, or disability, regardless
of age, at no cost, subject to availability. All donated equipment will be sanitized, refurbished,
and redistributed. This service will greatly improve the mobility and quality of life of many
Maryland residents.

Donations Needed:
The Maryland Department of Aging is currently accepting donations of Durable Medical
Equipment. Donated equipment will be sanitized and refurbished to later be provided to adults and
children who need equipment. For more information on how you can donate, please visit the Maryland Department of Aging DME Program or call 240- 230-8000

Environmental:
Protect our landfills! Maryland Durable Medical Equipment Re-Use is currently accepting donations
of new or gently-used durable medical equipment. Please visit our website for a list of collection
sites across the state. These tax-deductible donations will not only improve someone’s quality of
life, but also substantially improve the environment by diverting discarded equipment from our
landfills.
