Recycling at HSC

Circa Terra Morgantown

The purpose of Circa Terra is to collect medical equipment that cannot be used in Ruby Memorial and Monongalia General Hospitals and provide it to Global Links for export to developing countries. The equipment we collect has been opened but not used for medical procedures. However, it is clean and safe for use in countries where such supplies are desperately needed.
