Reuse or Recycle Spectacles

Stacks of specs?

Can spectacles be recycled?

No, your local authority will not collect spectacles for recycling. Neither will recycling centres accept them.

Donate them to a charity

'The second sight project' is a unique project helping to bring sight to people all over the world. Set up by Vision Aid, and with the help of Kodak lens they ask you to donate £1 along with your unwanted spectacles and help restore the sight to people in the developing world.
