Biomedical Equipment Donation Guidelines

MedShare’s recovery efforts save millions of pounds of surplus medical supplies and equipment from landfills and incinerators that, for various regulatory reasons, hospitals and medical companies must discard. We accept donations of unused, unexpired medical surplus supplies and used biomedical equipment through our hospital recovery program and corporate product donations.

Nigeria and Cote d’lvoire

To ensure that MedShare can utilize your donation, we must adhere to the following regulatory and safety guidelines.

– General medical equipment should preferably be 15 years old or less
– Imaging Equipment should preferably be less than 10 years old

– All items should be in full working condition unless approved by MedShare Biomedical staff
– Items with vinyl or other material should be free of stains or tears
– Metal materials should be rust-free

– Please include the necessary spare parts, manuals, cables, power cords, etc. or simply let us know what may be missing

As a non-profit, MedShare does not have the funding or capacity to pick up most donations, so items should be delivered or dropped off at the location below. Please consider your shipment cost as a Gift-in-Kind donation.
Thank you!

  • If you are a manufacturer, distributor, hospital or physician’s practice, we ask that you deliver your donations to us if at all possible.
  • Unfortunately, we are unable to pick up small quantity donations from a home or office. Please plan a delivery or drop-off in person.
  • For certain hospital partners and priority items, MedShare will coordinate pickup or delivery. Please let us know your need when completing the donation offer form.
