Many local non-profit agencies accept donations of wheelchairs, both manual and electric, and other medical equipment and often offer free pick-up. Your donation may also be tax deductible. An internet search such as “donate medical equipment York PA” will provide options of organizations that accept these donations.
Wheelchairs and other medical equipment may also be disposed of in your regular trash however, due to its weight, an electric wheelchair may need to be picked up during bulk/heavy item pick-up collections curbside or brought to the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC) directly.

Electric wheelchair/scooter batteries should be recycled at the facilities that sell these materials.
