Watauga Eyeglass Recycling Center

Watauga Eyeglass Recycling Center

Leo Club volunteers will meet Saturday the 15th at the Recycling Center (see calendar for details) , 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.
