Recycle Your Hearing Aids

Recycle Your Hearing AidsAlthough we wish otherwise about many things, nothing lasts forever. Sometimes this is a great thing. Trends like the mullet haircut and the MC Hammer pants of the nineties had their heyday, but we’re glad to see that they’ve been retired to the back of the attic. Some things are subjective. Relationships are a great example. You may wish that they’d last longer, but there is probably a reason that their time is through. And finally, there are the things that everyone is united on- the things that have a shelf life for a reason.


The great thing about Hearlink, is that this shelf life is as long as it gets. We’re referring of course, to the durability of our products- specifically, hearing aids. Hearlink is proud of the extensive research that we put in to our sourcing process. We go above and beyond in our due diligence, when we’re talking with the designers and distributors of our inventory. When you work with Hearlink, you should feel confident that your purchase will last as long as possible. Not that you won’t want to spend as much time as possible, chatting with the Hearlink professionals, but we want to make that your choice, not a requirement.


Like we shared above, all good things do come to an end. This means that at a certain point, you’ll need to get rid of your hearing aids and trade them in for a new pair. We’re here today to help you with the next steps.


Hearlink is dedicated to sustainable business practices. We see opportunities for sustainability end-to-end. From the sourcing process, to our marketing, from product design, to the recycling process that we will discuss today, our goal is to limit our carbon footprint as much as possible. What we’re taking from the earth, and from the industry, we want to give right back to it.


So what do you do with your hearing aids when it’s time to bid them a fond farewell? We know, we know, there have been countless amazing memories, but it’s only an opportunity to explore the new scientific breakthroughs that Hearlink shares in the products on our Website. So it’s time to recycle your existing pair. That’s right, recycle.


There are almost 500 locations of either the Australian Hearing Centre or a hearing aid bank. Here you have the opportunity to ensure your hearing aids are brought to the right place, where the materials will be properly repurposed. This is just one organization that is dedicated to maximizing the life of the materials that helped to optimize your hearing over the past years. And even though the charitable act is probably more than enough for you, there’s an added bonus in recycling your hearing aids. When you bring your hearing aids to one of the recycling centers, you’ll receive a receipt that shows a tax deduction that you’ll receive.


As with any of the content found on the Hearlink site, we’re here to answer the questions that you may have. Give the Hearlink team a shout, we’d love to hear from you!
