Is anyone aware of any recycling programs for the EXPIRED hardware? Such as the CGM sensors? I have been reorganizing my supplies and ran across some old sensors that have expired and I am reluctant to use. I would like to have these recycled instead of just tossing out. My community has an electronics recycling every 6 months, but seems odd putting these in with say old speakers and dead calculators.

I given my expired sensors to my CDE, in the past. They need training materials and gladly put outdated hardware to good use. At the same time, sensors still have proven to be effective for quite a while after the EXP date. Your call really...
I have heard that some people have had good results from expired sensors. I have tried a few have have failed in all attempts. I would rather not attempt and risk needing to remove one so shortly after being put in. I have enough road mappings of prior sensor spots.

I will however ask my CDE about that option. Maybe they can use the materials. Thanks!
