Frequent question: Can contact be recycled?

What can I do with unwanted contact lenses?

Recycle your unused, unexpired and unopened contact lenses by donating them to places like Goodwill or the non-profit organization DonateContacts. While many of Goodwill facilities accept unused contact lenses and used glasses, be sure to call the location nearest to you to double-check.

Are contacts biodegradable?

The short answer is, no. Disposable contact lenses are not compostable, and unfortunately, they’re also not recyclable through the normal channels.
