Keep feeding the Recycling Lion

For the last twenty five years, the Lions Club of Clacton on Sea has been collecting used and unwanted pairs of spectacles and hearing aids across the Tendring Area.  These are sorted and graded and sent to the Third World by Lions Sightsavers based in Chichester.  Those that are not suitable are broken up for spares or recycling – no part is wasted.
We also collect used or unwanted computer printer cartridges and mobile phones.  These are recycled to raise funds for the East Anglian Children’s Hospices and it is estimated that in the last twelve months this process has raised over £5,000 from our recycling collections.
You can find our Collection Bins – usually coloured Blue – in over 30 locations across the Tendring Area from Brightlingsea to Harwich, from Clacton on Sea to Manningtree.
