Owens, Lions focus on used eyeglasses for recycling

Two area groups are looking for used eyeglasses that they can recycle.

The environmental club at Owens Community College has teamed up with the Bowling Green Evening Lions Club in an eyeglass collection program that will begin Monday and run through April 4.

The groups are in need of a variety of eyeglasses for children and adults, including weak and strong prescriptions, reading glasses, and sunglasses. Owens has set up collection points around its Perrysburg Township and Findlay campuses.

Once the drive has concluded, Lions club members and other community groups will clean the glasses and prepare them for distribution to developing countries.
