Our new return to reuse equipment pilot scheme to collect unused equipment and daily living aids that have been provided by Blackpool Equipment Service.
The scheme aims to give residents a few ways of returning the items they no longer use so they can be restored and then reused helping minimise waste.
The items that can be dropped off are:
- Walking frames and wheeled walking aids
- Toilet/bathroom aids
- Bed rails
- Pressure care aids
Unfortunately we can’t accept any electrical or powered items or anything that has been hired.
Please see a full list of items that we accept
How to donate equipment
Residents can drop their items off:
- At the ‘Tip Shop’ seven days a week between 11.00am and 3.00pm at the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC), Bristol Avenue, Bispham
- Through a Rover collection. The mobile tip operates Monday to Friday across Blackpool
- If you are unable to access the Tip or Rover or are unsure what items can be accepted contact Blackpool Equipment Service on 01253 476667 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
