Recycle glasses and contact lenses at Chelmsley Wood opticians

Solihull Editorial 12th May, 2023   0

OLD GLASSES and contact lenses can be recycled in a Chelmsley Wood opticians.

The new initiative comes after Specsavers teamed up with recycling experts MYgroup to install recycling collection boxes in the store.

Silhiliians can drop off both metal and plastic glasses and sunglasses, as well as contact lenses and accessories, including blister packs, contact lens cases and solution bottles at the Greenwood Square store.

Once the collection bins are full, the items will be shipped off to a MYgroup recycling plant.

The glasses and contact lenses will be given a second lease of life and repurposed into a wide range of items such as furniture, home, and garden accessories, including benches, and play park equipment.

Sukhwant Drake, store director at Specsavers Chelmsley Wood, said: “We are so happy to be able to offer our customers the chance to recycle their used eyecare products. We know from customer feedback that this is important for anyone who visits our store so it’s great that we can now offer this service.”
