Limbcare has found that often redundant or unusable limbs are scrapped into landfill sites.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Limbcare Trustees have had to reorganise their recycling service. They are sadly no longer able to accept items such as crutches and manual wheelchairs.

However, they can still make good use of mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs should you have any you might wish to donate. These items would need to be in good condition (with no body work damage), have keys and good batteries.

They should be able to collect these items, if necessary, within a 50 mile radius of Camberley, Surrey, although the collection point needs to be outside the area of the London Congestion Zone.

If you are considering a donation of these items, please contact us:
Email: info@limbcare.org, or
