Glasses and Spectacles
Where can I recycle?
You cannot put old spectacles or glasses in your household recycling bin; however, many opticians collect them for charities.
What can I do with them?
- Ask your optician if they collect old spectacles. Many do – they are donated to charities who send them to developing countries;
- Vision Aid Overseas can help you find an optician in your area who collect old spectacles;
- Search online – many charities will accept unwanted spectacles.
