Give your eclipse glasses a second chance!


Don't trash those used eclipse glasses - recycle them! 

The Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste Department is collecting solar eclipse glasses at two locations:

  • Solid Waste Department office, 725 Hancock Industrial Way
  • Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM), 1005 College Ave.

Used glasses will be sent to Astronomers Without Borders for schools in South America and Asia during eclipses events in 2019. 

For more information, contact the Recycling Division at 706-613-3512.
