The Project

The Lions Club of the City of Adelaide proudly supports the Lions Recycle for Sight Program, an International Lions project.

Recycle for Sight Australia has collected millions of pairs of used spectacles, sunglasses, new frames and other equipment. The program distributes regraded, or refurbished, spectacles to many parts of the world to Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs and other humanitarian organisations for distribution to people in need, with no expense or obligation for the recipient.

Since the Australian program started in the early 1990s, the program has delivered over 2.5 million pair to countries in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Indian Sub continent, East Asia, and the Far East, including China, the countries of the Pacific Rim and Southern Asia and Oceania.

If you have any glasses, or sunglasses, that you no longer use or need, then why not recycle them by donating them to this great program. You can drop off any glasses to the collection location(s) listed and our Club will organise to pack them up and send them to Lions Recycle for Sight ready for refurbishment and distribution.

Drop your spectacles into one of the listed locations or post them to PO Box 139, Walkerville SA 5081
