Are your trying to figure how to reduce and recycle more plastic that has become part of your daily life?
To celebrate this 49th Earth Day, we’d like to remind you of our contact lens recycling program.
Contact lens solution bottles and cardboard boxes are recyclable in your regular recycling bin. However, individual contact lens blister packs are too small for most public recycling programs.
Millions of used blister packs go into the garbage each day and many people flu…sh used contact lenses which often then end up in our water supplies. Stop! Recycle them with the Bausch + Lomb’s One by One Recycling Program. B+L has provided us with collection containers to send contact lens blister packs, foil covers, and used lenses to TerraCycle. TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company of hard-to-recycle waste.
How can you get your used blister packs and contacts to TerraCycle? Just save them and drop them off at our office whenever convenient. We’ll take care of getting them to TerraCycle for you! Any contact lens manufacturer’s blister packs and lenses are accepted.
