Crutch Madness in HSE

I cannot understand the practice of HSE refusing to take back crutches and other mobility aids even though they are perfect.The cost of replacing such items is costing HSE up to €10 million per year.
In the past they were cleaned down and re issued, why are we wasting money ?
