This program is private and ONLY available to eye care professionals.
TerraCycle and Bausch + Lomb have partnered to create a free recycling program for Biotrue® ONEday contact lenses and blister packs, as well as lenses and packs from other Baush + Lomb brands.
As of February 1, 2018, your shipments must weigh at least 10 lbs to earn the Optometry Giving Sight donation through the Bausch + Lomb ONE by ONE Recycling Program for Eyecare Professionals. Larger shipments help reduce fuel costs and create a smaller impact on the planet. It's just one more way we can make this program even better for the environment.
Participating is completely free and very easy. Please note: Unfortunately, eye care professionals located in Hawaii and Alaska are ineligible to participate in this program at this time.
Program accepted waste: Biotrue® ONEday brand contact lenses and blister packs, as well as other Bausch + Lomb brand contact lenses and blister packs
Please note: Biotrue® ONEday and other Bausch + Lomb brand cardboard boxes are recyclable through regular municipal recycling. Please do not include them in your shipments through this program.
To recycle this waste stream properly, please do not include any Biotrue® ONEday or other Bausch + Lomb brand cardboard boxes in your shipments, as these are recyclable through your regular municipal recycling service.
Once received, the contact lenses and blister packs are separated by composition and cleaned. The metal layers of the blister packs are recycled separately, while the contact lenses and plastic blister pack components are melted into plastic that can be remolded to make recycled products.
As thanks for your dedication to Eliminating the Idea of Waste, a $1 donation will be made to Optometry Giving Sight for every pound of accepted Biotrue ONEday brand packaging sent through this program.
