Got old used glasses lying around? We will recycle them for you and give them new life!
Donated eyeglasses can help improve the quality of life for children and adults living in low and middle income communities around the world. Many will experience corrected vision for the first time, enabling them to lead productive working lives, support their families, attend school and advance their education.
Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers throughout the world clean and store usable recycled eyeglasses. Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers operate voluntarily with the support of public donations, individual member contributions, and Lions Clubs International Foundation grants. Many Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers help minimize landfill waste by supporting precious metal reclamation and scrap processing. Broken glasses are discarded, providing “scrap to cash” income that can aid local community projects.
