Eyeglass Collection

Eyeglass Drop Box

Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs).  LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses.  Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.  Eyeglass collection is just one of the many ways that Lions serve V.I.P.s (Visually Impaired People).  NOTE:  We do not recycle or reuse the cases – just the eyeglasses themselves.

Learn more about the recycling program at North Carolina Lions Inc. – HERE.

We also accept and recycle:

  • Hearing Aids
  • Cell Phones
  • Hearing Aid and Watch Batteries

The Apex Lions Club has placed some collection boxes like the one pictured above all around town.  Here are some locations in and around Apex where you can donate eyeglasses that you don’t need any more:
