The ACUVUE® Contact Lens Recycling Programme

Recycle your contact lenses, blister packs and foil covers.

Discover Our Recycling Process

Once collected, the aggregated contact lenses, blister packaging and outer foils are sorted, shredded and washed. The material is then densified into hard-granulated plastic granules. The granules are then extruded so they can be incorporated into the production of different plastic products such as benches.
