What happens to old eyeglasses?

    If you donate them to the Lions club, they will be donated to someone less fortunate that shares similar vision problems as you. They are sometimes shipped to a third world country. It really makes sense to donate them instead of let them take up space in a landfill.

    Over 4 billion pairs of eyeglasses are thrown away each year in North America.  If you’re looking to dispose of eyeglasses, use the second resource provided below – type in “glasses”, along with your zip code, and you will be given a list of nearby recycling centers that will accept them.  This is a much better alternative to throwing them away, as they most likely find their way into a landfill somewhere.
