How to dispose of tubing which is not biodegradable


#1

We are committed recyclers and it seems that all the parts (except the machine) are not recyclabel and will end up in the landfill. Any suggestions?


#2

Do you have an old PAP device that you are looking to get rid of? Or factory sealed supplies you never used or know someone that does? Your equipment/supply donation is eligible for an in-kind tax letter for your records. You can include the value you place on your machine, plus the cost of shipping on this document for tax purposes. To receive the in-kind tax letter please be sure to include a note in the package with your contact information- this includes your name, address and email address (if available).

With continued support from people like you, the ASAA will be able to continue providing PAP devices and supplies to those in need.

If you are interested in donating to the American Sleep Apnea Association CPAP Assistance Program (CAP) you can ship them to:

ASAA-CAP

524 Craig Ave
Tracy, MN 56175

Please DO NOT SEND equipment/supply donations to our Washington DC location. There are no drop off locations in the DC or any other areas. All shipments must be sent to the Minnesota address above.

Please print and complete this form and include with your equipment donation.

We are currently accepting all device types and all factory sealed supplies.

That is a great idea! I have a machine (Phillips Respironics System One) that was new 4 years ago, they switched me to a different machine recently and I have been wondering what to do with that perfectly good old machine!

I have a couple of the SD cards that collect the data as well. The data hasn’t been erased on them. Should I send them as well, and how can I erase the data first? or does that matter?

Hi @KimR,

I don’t think it matters, but it’s up to you about the cards.

Thank you for helping those in need!

Thanks!
