Spectacle recycling

Used spectacles are collected and sent to another local Lions Club for onward transmission to France. Here they are graded before being sent to developing countries for re-use. Our principal spectacle collection points are Boots the opticians at their Clock Tower, and London Road branches in Brighton, and their George Street and Boundary Road branches in Hove; Collinsons (previously Linwood Strong), 57b London Road, Brighton; the Specky Wren, Marshalls Row (Open Market), Brighton; and the Eyecare Centre, 156 Church Road, Hove.

Used hearing aids are also collected for recycling to developing countries and can be left at the spectacle collection points.
