Durable Medical Equipment Re-Use Program
Maryland Department of Aging’s Durable Medical Equipment Re-Use Program
The Maryland Durable Equipment Re-Use Program is a, first of its kind, statewide initiative that provides durable medical equipment (DME) to Maryland residents with any illness, injury, or disability, regardless of age, free of charge. Examples of acceptable DME for donation are wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, and scooters. For a full list of acceptable DME, see the link below.
To support this initiative, Baltimore City now provides two collection locations for DME donations and these sites are facilitated by the Department of Public Works (DPW).
Collection sites will be at the Convenience Drop-Off Centers at the Northwest Transfer Station, located at 5030 Reisterstown Road, and the Quarantine Road Landfill, located at 6100 Quarantine Road, where DME collections will begin on April 15, 2021.
DME donations will be sanitized and refurbished to later be provided to eligible adults and children in need.
