New Lions Eyeglass Recycle Center opens in District 2E2

The grand opening of the new 2E2 Lions Club Recycling center was well attended by a host of Lions Clubs and our very own Colleyville LEO Club. The center will try to be open on Saturdays from 9am to 3pm.

Processing the Donated Eyeglasses

Lions and LEO Club volunteers will work at our new Recycling Center, evaluating, cleaning and cataloging 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.
