The well-known contact lens manufacturer Acuvue and Terracycle launched the UK's first soft contact lens recycling program.

They can recycle soft lenses of any brand, and it's very easy to do!

Just collect a lot of used contact lenses, plastic bubble bags and foils, and pack them in a box, then you can download and print free shipping labels from their website and arrange for UPS collection.

Or, you can take the old lenses you collected to a drop-off location near you. ACUVUE® is working with opticians across the UK to create a network of drop-off locations.

Look for recycling bins at more than 650 Boots optician shops or participating independent optician clinics closest to you.

Please do not flush contact lenses into the sink! These tiny transparent plastic pieces are deadly to wild animals.
