By participating in Cardiac Life's sustainable AED recycling information program, we can help you understand how to recycle your AEDs, electrodes, and AED rescue ready kits.
Cardiac Life also works with a company that re-cells AED batteries to make the industry more sustainable and earth friendly.
Your AED and AED accessories should be disposed of according to state and federal guidelines through an authorized recycling facility.
AED Unit Recycling Program Products:
AED Units: AEDs contain electronic parts such as circuit boards which need to be properly recycled and disposed of.
AED Electrodes/Pads: Pediatric AED electrodes use an ‘attenuator’ to reduce the shock delivered to the patient. This attenuator contains a circuit board which needs to be recycled properly.
A majority of all adult/child electrodes contain parts like printed circuit boards which should not be landfilled. They should be dropped off at a recycling center or placed in a recycling bin.
AED Batteries: Non-rechargeable AED batteries are considered hazardous waste material. The batteries contain lithium sulfur dioxide and need to be recycled or re-celled for new use. Please contact us for details on where to send your battery to help make our planet more sustainable.
Certain batteries are not RE-CELLABLE, therefore they should be recycled. A representative will be able to tell you if the battery is re-cellable.
Use ground transportation when shipping old batteries and ensure that they do not touch. Place batteries in an individual sustainable bag to avoid connection.
