Q: Do you refine platinum from pacemakers? – From John in St. Louis, MO
A: Hi John!
Unfortunately, pacemakers do not have enough platinum to be cost effective to process and offer a return payment. Medical devices such as EP catheter tips and defibrillator pads contain higher amounts of platinum and are more ideal for refining.
If you have either of these items you can send the pacemakers along with these items. Or if you would like to dispose of the pacemakers in an environmentally secure manner, we can assist you, however, there would be no payment made to you, only the disposal service.
Thank you for your question!
