Recycling Home

Throughout the year, City of Edinburgh Lions Club collects spectacles and delivers them for cleaning, sorting (by prescrition strength) and packaging at Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center. The recycled spectacles are distributed in developing countries to people in need of them.

You can help to make a persons life different with a non used pair of spectacles that is lying in your household. The recycled spectacles have a great impact on the people needing them. You can contribute in making a big difference by donating a pair(s) of spectacles that you do not need. To find out how and where you can donate the spectacles please use the Contact Us page or go to one of the collection points listed below.
