How it works

Participating is simple and free.

  1. Sign up for the program. If you don’t have a TerraCycle account yet, create one here

  2. Once in the program, start collecting contact lens solution bottle caps and lens cases in any shipping box you have. Please remove the cap from the solution bottle by popping it off (these are not screw caps) before you send in your shipment. Bottles can be recycled curbside if you have a recycling program in your area. Do not include bottles in your shipment!

  3. When your collection box is full, log into your account to download and print a shipping label.

  4. Seal up your collection box, affix the printed shipping label onto it. Send via UPS.

What you can recycle

Any brand contact lens solution caps (no bottles) and contact lens cases

Best practices for recycling

When preparing your shipment for recycling, we encourage you to ship when your box is full of contact lens solution caps and cases to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the contact lens solution caps and cases, along with other similar items, are cleaned and melted into hard plastic pellets that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


Shipments in the Biotrue® Eye Care Recycling Program can be any weight to earn points, and 100 points per pound will be awarded.

Awarded TerraCycle points can be allocated toward a variety of charitable gifts or redeemed as a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each contact lens solution cap and case sent in will earn approximately 1 TerraCycle point and will be counted based on an average unit weight of .01 pounds.
