Where can I recycle old eyeglasses?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

Some charities and optometrists collect used eyeglasses for use in developing countries. Check with the RCBC Recycling Hotline or the RCBC Recyclepedia for a collection point in your area.
