Eyeglass & Hearing Aid Recycling

Unsure of what to do with old glasses or hearing aids? Help turn someone else's dream of sight or sound into a reality by donating your used eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses and hearing aids. Your donation can change a person's life.

  • Collected eyeglasses are sent to Lions of Illinois Foundation. These recycled eyeglasses are given to people in need, with the help of various medical missionaries, in Central and South America and around the world. When the eyeglasses arrive in these countries, doctors and technicians conduct eye exams and provide a free pair of prescription eyeglasses that are as close as possible to that person’s sight needs
See the Journey of a Pair of Eyeglasses for the beginning to end process.
  • Used Hearing Aids are collected sent to Lions of Illinois Foundation.  The aids are checked and refurbished to be used for individuals that match the specifications of the aides.Hearing aids are sorted for usefulness, reconditioned and coded, then returned to the Hearing Aid Bank. Then they are ready for distribution. 

When donating HEARING AIDS, please be sure to place them in a small box or hard covered case so they do not get crushed or damaged. You can then place that smaller box into a larger one with other recyclable items. Please protect any CELL PHONES also.
