Spectacles
Can it be recycled?

Can I recycle spectacles?

No.  Local authorities do not collect spectacles but 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.
