Everyone can get involved in the effort to recycle eyeglasses and Change Lives, One Pair at a Time.
Waste Connections of Tennessee encourages its customers and community to participate in the Lions Club eyeglass recycling program “Lions Recycle for Sight.” The eyeglass recycling program accepts eyeglasses that are no longer being used, routes them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers where they are cleaned and packaged by prescription strength and readied to be used by someone in need.
Donating eyeglasses not only keeps a valuable product out of the landfill, it helps others. The whole family can get involved in the recycling program: parents and grandparents can donate their unused eyeglasses and children can help prepare the glasses for mailing and learn the importance of recycling.
The Lions Club has supported improving eye health since its founding 100 years ago. While eyeglass recycling is done at 18 centers worldwide, the Lions are also involved in projects to prevent blindness, restore eye sight and generally improve eye health for millions of people around the globe.
It is simply to donate eyeglasses to the Lion’s Recycle for Sight program, simply send them to:
Lions Clubs International Headquarters
Attention: Receiving Department
300 W. 22nd Street
Oak Brook, IL 60523
The Lions Club distributes the recycled eyeglasses to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact.
