It came as wonderful news to discover that hearing aids can be recycled and passed on to a second user. Here’s how:
My Mom purchased her hearing aids from Costco. (Costco has the best prices and the most freebies—sorry Sam’s Club, I’m your loyal shopper otherwise.)
After we lost Mom, I hated the idea of discarding those precious and expensive items. When I checked, I learned that Costco can reprogram those “mini computers” to match a new user. For members, the reprogramming is free.
Now, my Mom’s younger sister will have hearing aids for the price of a Costco membership. It is a wonderful feeling to share a part of my Mom with her sister in this way.
If you do not know someone, maybe you can resell, gift, or donate them to the Lion’s Club. Whatever you decide, do not let them go to waste.
By the way, you do not need to be a member to have a free consultation at Costco. If you decide to buy, you can join after making the purchase decision.
