Unwanted bags

Posted: Sun Jun 25, 2017 2:53 pm

Does anyone know where I can dispose of a number of uncut drainable bags.  I don't want to just bin them if they can be used elsewhere.   Thanks

Send them to FOW, (Friends of Ostimates World Wide).

Website:   https://www.fowusa.org/

Address:

They will accept all new supplies.  I've mailed unused supplies to them several times as a result of having to change type of supplies.

Most ostomy nurses will take them to use for their clients who may not have the money/ insurance to afford their supplies.

Hi see your from the UK, here's a UK charity you can send them to have to pay the postage though.... If you have an IA group near you they accept them and pass them on and saves on having to pay postage.
