Recycling Eye Glasses and Hearing Aids

One major service commitment of the Crete Lions Club is the recycling of eye glasses and hearing aids. With the assistance of the locations below, we collect these items to be forwarded to the Lions of Illinois Foundation where they are cleaned, sorted, neutralize (determine the prescription), do minor repairs, and package for shipment to locations where the Lions will be holding a vision mission.

Collection locations:

  • Crete Town Hall                                                            
  • Park Forest Town Hall                                                 
  • Old Plank Trail Banks – Crete & Steger                   
  • Veld Vision                                                                     
  • Main Street Optical                                                     
  • Crete Library                                                                 
  • Lions Recycle Center
