Drop off used contact lenses for recycling at this Georgetown optometry office

TerraCycle Include Canada (English) CA Bausch + Lomb
Modern Eyes Optometry in Georgetown is now one of many companies across the country helping to divert contact lenses from landfills and natural habitats. Through the Bausch + Lomb Every Contact Counts Recycling Program, consumers can bring all brands of disposable contact lenses and their blister pack packaging, to the optometry office, located at 378 Mountainview Rd. S. The items will be recycled free of charge. Bausch + Lomb has partnered with TerraCycle Canada, a waste management company that partners with consumer product companies, retailers and cities to recycle products and packages, from dirty diapers to cigarette butts that would otherwise end up in landfills or incinerators.
More than 290 million contact lenses end up in Canadian landfills and waterways annually, according to TerraCycle Canada.
