We would love your feedback!
Many biosensor devices are single-use for patient safety – once disposed they end up as clinical waste, e-waste or worse as municipal waste – none of it allowing efficient recycling and recovery of precious components and materials.
MedalCRM is a first take-back programme in Ireland, addressing this problem in an efficient and user friendly way.
What happens with collected devices?
Nothing goes to the landfill.
Nothing gets incinerated.
Properly disposing used medical devices is helping to reduce the waste and recover materials that would often have to be mined from earth, at high environmental cost and using much more energy.
Where possible, device components (i.e. circuit boards or chips) might be extracted for future reuse.
Applicator and container are recycled with near 100% material recovery:
- Ferrous metals
- Circuit Printed Boards
- Other metals
Frequently Asked Questions
No, it’s free! Just bring them to one of the participating pharmacies and we will take care of everything else.
We hope to bring that option soon, but for now we only collect used devices at the participating pharmacies.
Collection bins will be available for you in the participating pharmacies until end of October 2022.
