Colleyville LEOs volunteer at Eyeglass Recycling Center

Club volunteers worked at our new Recycling Center, evaluating, cleaning and cataloging over 1300 pairs of donated eyeglasses.  Glasses with broken or missing lenses or parts are discarded or salvaged.

Volunteers clean the eyeglasses that get through the initial usability screening and then examine them with a lensometer to determine the prescription. They are then sealed in plastic bags with the prescription noted on each bag. Bagged glasses are packed into boxes according to prescriptions and stored until volunteer humanitarian groups need them.
