Recycling Your Medical ID Bracelet – Is it Time?

You’ve had your ID for years. You love it. It may even have helped you through a tough emergency situation. But, the years have worn it down, the engraving is not easily read, and one of the clasps is broken.

 

You need to get a new ID. But what do you do with the old one? You can’t just throw away a piece of jewelry, especially one with your personal medical information on it. But it’s not doing any good sitting in your jewelry box.

 

The answer: recycle it!

 

We stand by the quality of our products, but after years of diligent wear, even the finest engraving rubs off and the materials lose strength. That’s why we offer a recycling program so you can safely and securely discard your old ID and even get a little something in return. By recycling metals within our production shop, we’re able to defer costs of buying new materials from suppliers. Recycling is good for you, good for us, and good for the environment!

 

Recycling Your Bracelet

We’ll offer you a gift card to use toward the purchase of a new ID when you recycle your old one with us. Depending on the material, you’ll receive an American Medical ID gift card between $5 and $75. You’ll usually receive the gift card in about 4-6 weeks.

 

Recycling your ID is simple and easy. Fill out and submit the recycling form. Print the confirmation page and mail it, along with your old ID to us at:

American Medical ID

Attn: Recycle My ID Program

949 Wakefield Ste. 100

Houston, TX 77018

Remember, your medical ID is valuable because of the metals used to make it, so be sure to send it using registered mail or with shipping insurance!

 

Get a New ID!

The best part of recycling your ID is the gift card you’ll get so that you can purchase a new ID. We have hundreds of styles and colors, and are adding new products all the time.
