Partners for World Health has partnered with over 100 facilities in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts to establish medical recycling programs. We provide recycle bins for each floor of a facility and educate the nurses and housekeepers on their use. In addition, facility managers gather large durable medical equipment such as beds, exam tables, and wheelchairs. Every week, PWH volunteers pick up the supplies and equipment and take it to our distribution center where it is sorted and processed for shipment to under resourced communities around the world. We have partnered with representatives from hospitals in over 20 countries who assure us that the supplies and equipment reach hospitals and clinics in need.


We are always in need of items and we accept a wide variety of medical supplies and equipment. If you have medical supplies or equipment that are no longer of use to you or your facility, we will gladly take them!




PWH collects donated medical supplies and equipment from medical facilities (hospitals, clinics, doctors' offices, nursing homes, etc.), organizations and individuals. Please call 207 774 5555 to schedule an appointment.
