I am looking at the process for recycling walking aids. Has anyone completed a carbon footprint for these?

The planning pack attached has a carbon calculator and footprints for walking aid types. We have used the following footprint for ours:

Wheeled walker steel 11.558 kg CO2e

Wheeled walker aluminium 31.12 kg CO2e

Walker aluminium 28.84 kg CO2e

Crutches steel 3.25 kg CO2e

Crutches aluminium 8.04 kg CO2e

Stick aluminium 2.19 kg CO2e
