The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation operates one of the largest eyeglass recycling centers in the United States providing impact domestically and internationally. In addition to eyeglasses we accept readers, sunglasses, hearing aids and cell phones.
The eyeglass recycling center is located in Chamblee, Georgia and is a volunteer-dependent initiative. We would like to invite you to come to serve with us in the Recycling Center! Together we can make a difference for people around the world by giving the gift of clear sight.
