I have a lot of technically expired pump supplies. I’ve had to use expired supplies once as a backup and it worked great although I understand the legal repercussions. Are there spots to donate expired supplies or accessories? Cr3diabetes only takes unexpired and I’d like to keep all this stuff out of the landfill as long as possible. I was able to send directly to someone in Canada a long time ago but I’m not on FB anymore so that connection is lost (she very knowingly accepted way outdated supplies).
Things I have:
Recently expired omnipod pods
1 box of expired Medtronic reservoirs (several years old)
1 box of expired Medtronic infusion sets (several years old)
First gen Medtronic CGM (10+ years old)
Tubed pump accessories (like the garter belt! yikes!)
Dexcom gen 1 and 2 receivers
So much more like Medtronic insertion tools, etc.
I will obviously be keeping some stuff just in case, you know, the apocalypse comes, but the rest of it is really starting to add up.
