Instead of sending your old glasses to a landfill, consider finding a local eye glass donation bin where your used, unwanted glasses are repaired and given to someone who can not afford to purchase them on their own. There are a number of organizations that accept your glasses for Reuse.
Lions Collection Boxes
You can drop off your usable eyewear at Lions-sponsored collection boxes in your community. Typical locations include libraries, schools, community centers, places of worship, coffee shops, optometrist offices and other public locations where communities socialize and get together.
