Regional Reuse Centers

The FAAST Regional Reutilization Centers (RRCs) provide an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to possibly acquire used but refurbished devices at little or no cost. The centers receive donations of used equipment and make the necessary maintenance upgrades and repairs to get the equipment in working order once again. This equipment often includes mobility, computers and other forms of durable medical equipment. Contact the center nearest you for more information and a list of equipment available.
