The Lung Association of Nova Scotia has been running its Sleep Apnea Refurbishment Program for almost 10 years, reports CTV News Atlantic.

“We collect gently-used sleep apnea machines and we refurbish them with the help of Dalhousie University School of Health Sciences,” explains Donaldson.

“The machines come to us; we dispose, discard any disposal parts on the machine,” says Dalhousie University student Megan Butler. “We clean them, we disinfect them. We use our clean device to sterilize the machines.”
