power chair recycling

Hi all,

I have a old powerchair that I would like to recycle/dispose of - its currently sitting in my living room taking up a lot of space. its approximately 11 years old.  I am unable to take it to the tip at the moment due to lockdown. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    If its still in working order you could try and give it away on "feegle" or "gumtree" ?
    I will now only offer benefits advice on PIP, and specific benefits advice for other people with Epilepsy.
