Bausch + Lomb Australia has partnered with TerraCycle to facilitate recycling of contact lenses and blister packs for the first time. Any brand of used
contact lenses and blister packs can be recycled for free.
“Bausch + Lomb is incredibly conscious of its environmental impact, and wants to offer its customers a better solution for their used products,” said Geraldine Maraboli, Bausch + Lomb Australia. “We are calling on anyone who wears contact lenses to sign up to the programme and help divert their lenses and blister packs from landfill.”
You are able to drop your Contact Lens packaging into Clarity Optometrists Bulimba! Or you can log on to the Terracycle website and send them directly to them. Once signed up, wearers collect their used contact lenses and blister packs in any box, download a prepaid shipping label from the TerraCycle website, attach it to the box, and drop off their package at any Australia Post outlet. The used contact lenses and blister packs collected by TerraCycle will be recycled into sustainable products and materials.
The recycling programme also gives back by making a AU$1 donation to Optometry Giving Sight for every kilogram of accepted waste sent through the programme.
Vision for Life.
