Going green at the NRC – recycling contact lenses

The NRC was set up with sustainability in mind so if you are looking for a sustainable venue it is a great place to book. Over coming months we will be taking you through a range of environmentally friendly initiatives that happen at the NRC – and we are always looking for ways to improve so do get in touch if you have more ideas to support our work towards being a truly sustainable venue.

One of the NRC’s latest initiatives is getting involved with the Terracycle Contact Lens Recycling Scheme. NRC Operations Manager Mat Stringer says, “We will be actively encouraging all NRC users to recycle contact lenses, blister packs and foil from packaging.”
