Contact Lens Recycling Program


Park Slope Eye is proud to announce that we will now be recycling used contact lens blister packs (see above).   Blister packs are made of polypropylene as denoted by the #5 recycle symbol.  Unfortunately, you can not currently place these with your other plastic recyclables because there is no NYC Dept. of Sanitation program to recycle them.

Save them up, and bring them by.  I will ensure their delivery to the proper recycling facility.  Just please remember to remove the foil from the plastic.  Don’t forget the foil can go with your regular metal recyclables!

Park Slope Eye is located in Brooklyn, NY.  For more info contact Justin Bazan, OD, the optometrist of Park Slope Eye, at Dr.Bazan@ParkSlopeEye.com or visit www.ParkSlopeEye.com Also, check us out on Yelp!, Twitter and FaceBook.

  1. Great idea! Mind if I “borrow” it?

  3. Hey Justin that is fantastic that you are doing this. We have been holding on to these cases hoping for a solution as opposed to chucking this extra plastic in the trash.

    Would you accept a small prepaid priority mail pack with these contact cases. Unless you know of an office in Raleigh, NC doing the same kind of good deed.

    Thanks for your reply.
