RE: CPAP disposal
I donated my somewhat old but very low hour cpap (it was not a brick, it had a data card) to my sleep doc. He treats people who have no money for machines, and no insurance, and one of them will be gifted the machine by him... We did the same thing a couple of years ago with my wife's cpap machine when she switched to BiPAP.

It is nice to give these to someone in need.

Pretty sure you can give stuff you own away as you see fit
