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.

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?

  2. Borrow away! If you can’t find a local facility, check out this program: http://www.preserveproducts.com/gimme5/

  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.


  4. […] Recycle Your Contact Lens Foil! PSEye already collects and recycles the plastic containers as seen here: https://justinbazan.wordpress.com/2009/02/20/contact-lens-recycling-program/ […]

  5. Hi Justin,

    I read about this before and would like to incorporate it into my practice. I will give you credit for the idea in my blog.

    Great idea!

  6. Hi Justin.
    This is going to sound really really weird but I’m a textile student and I wanted to use the blister packets in my coursework and final outcome. I have been saving my own but I know I won’t have enough of them by the time my deadline arrives. Have you any idea where I could get old ones from… or do you think it would be possible to take some of them off your hands?
    Many Thanks

  7. Thank you for your blog post. Jones and I have already been saving for just a new e book on this subject matter and your short article has made all of us to save money. Your opinions really clarified all our queries. In fact, over what we had thought of prior to when we came upon your excellent blog. My spouse and i no longer nurture doubts including a troubled mind because you have really attended to our needs in this article. Thanks

  8. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know
    a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.

    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
