Eyeglass Recycle

Did you know that Lions around the world collect old, unwanted eyeglasses?  It's all part of the Lions Clubs International program, Recycle for Sight

We collect eyeglasses of all types:  single lenses, trifocals, broken glasses, prescription and nonprescription, reading glasses or sunglasses. We collect them all!  We also take any cases that are no longer needed. 
 
The donated glasses are shipped to the Aurora Borealis Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center in North Pole, Alaska, where they will be cleaned, categorized by prescription, and prepared for distribution to needy people around the world.  Including Alaska. 

We ask people to go through their dresser drawers, desks, filing cabinet, kitchen table, cabin, boat, car, garage, bedside table, and any where else they might have left a pair of glasses they no longer need and bring them to one of the six collection sites in Juneau:
