Understanding the importance

Wheelchairs are made from plastic materials and metal materials. If you have an electric vehicle then it will be loaded with battery and other electronic elements. All those items are very serious to the environment as they will not degrade naturally and it will create lots of problems, especially the battery of an electric wheelchair. So we need to dispose of them properly or recycle them in a responsible manner.


Local guidelines

Our municipalities always set guidelines for the recycling or disposal of every item and you can consult the local recycling centers for the guidelines as they will help you to recycle or dispose of them in a proper manner or they might also recycle the items for you that will make your job easy as well.

Try to exchange

Exchange is one of the best solutions whenever you purchase a new wheelchair as the manufacturer will recycle and dispose of the old unwanted items of a wheelchair in a proper manner and this will avoid the risk of bad impact to the environment. Moreover, when you exchange your old wheelchair with a new wheelchair, the company will offer a discount as well and that will be beneficial for you as well.


Your old wheelchair might not be good for you but not for others. You can find local charity Institutions or NGOs. You can also find some poor people who require a wheelchair as well. Donating your old wheelchair will not only help them to commute but will also avoid the consumption of resources and that will create a good impact on the environment.

Maximum utilization

Before thinking about the recycling procedure, you must consider using the wheelchair at its maximum because that will help you to save money and also to conserve resources. You can use some alternatives like using extra pillows for better comfort or you can patch if there is any wear and tear on the body.
