What can you do with your used eyeglasses? Recycle them and give someone the gift of sight! West Covina Lions Club collects and recycles eyeglasses. Recycled glasses can help a child read a book – or help an adult get a job – or keep a senior independent. Recycle your used eyeglasses in West Covina Lions collection boxes. Your eyeglasses will be tested and labeled by teens in Leos Clubs to determine their prescription. Once labeled, Lions will distribute these eyeglasses in the U.S. and developing nations worldwide. Last year West Covina Lions collected 6,000 used eyeglasses for recycling. We would be happy to recycle yours. Drop them at any of the following locations: 20/20 Vision Center 1401 W.
