What to do with
You cannot put old spectacles or glasses in your household recycling bin; however, you can donate them to charity.
- Ask your optician if they collect old spectacles. Many do - they are donated to charities who send them to developing countries.
- Vision Aid Overseas can help you find an optician in your area who collect old spectacles.
- Some charities such as Marie Curie will accept unwanted spectacles at their shops.
