Weaned your baby and wondering what to do with your pump? More than 1,300 breastpumps have been recycled since the Medela Recycles program was launched last year. Old pumps received through the program help Medela donate hospital-grade premie pumps and supplies to Ronald McDonald House Charities. 

With the goal of making it easier for moms to breastfeed while away from home, the program supports mothers staying at Ronald McDonald Houses across the country while their babies are in NICU. The company hopes to recycle 12,000 pumps by the end of 2015; learn how to recycle your pump from now until December at MedelaRecycles.com.
