Eclipse Glasses Recycling

eclipse
The solar eclipse has come and gone in all its majestic celestial beauty!
 

Now you pay be wondering what to do with those glasses you worked so hard to get! Have no fear, there is no reason why these magic spectacles have to end up in the trash (even if they were recalled...)! Here are a couple of options:

1. For the collectors/eclipse chasers/astronomy nerds, keep them. Think of the great stories you can tell your grandkids!

2. Recycle them! To recycle your paper or cardboard eclipse glasses, simply remove the lens film, and put the frames into your comingled recycling bin. Unfortunately, the lens film and any plastic glasses must go into the trash.

 

Happy Eclipse Memories everyone!
