Eye Glasses, Hearing Aids, Cell Phones and Mints

These projects are going on throughout the year.

Eye Glasses, Hearing Aids and Cell Phone Recycling

Throughout the year we collect used eye glasses and hearing aids which are delivered to regional centers where they are sorted by prescription strength, cleaned and packaged. The recycled eye glasses and hearing aids enhance the lives of adults and children worldwide. Cell phones can be reused and given to women's shelters, etc. Contact: Don & Jeanne Stechmann.

Local collection boxes may be found at:

Associated Bank Entrance - on Bush Street
Mahn Family Funeral Home ‚Äč- on Plum Street
