Recycle your old hearing aids

Post on 23rd July 2020

Enforced time at home inspired Covid clearouts with all manner of items found that were destined for tips and skips or for recycling and re-use through charity shops.

If you came across old or unwanted hearing aids during your spruce-up, these can be found new homes by dropping them into our branches.

For more than 20 years our business has supported a charity initiative launched by the Rotary Club of Birmingham to provide life-changing hearing aids for distribution to schools and clinics in poor communities in developing countries.

The hearing aids go to contacts established through Rotary’s international links to ensure they get to those in need, for example at a school for the deaf and hard of hearing in Tanzania.

We have donated end of line hearing aids which have been superseded by better technology as part of our support. The public can also do their bit by handing in any unwanted hearing aids which have been supplied privately at any of our 170 branches in England and Wales.

Hearing aids continue to improve as technology and design moves on so it is certainly worth investing in new hearing aids to enhance your life.

We have a range of digital hearing aids available and its staff can give help and advice if you have any concerns about your hearing.

Annual hearing health checks are recommended for anyone over 50 to identify changes and see what action is needed. We provide free NHS hearing services for people who are eligible and have been referred by their GP.
