Opticycle collects Disposable Contact Lens Cases. Each box or bag received at our processing facility is checked in and weighed allowing us to track and report on performance across our network of participating organisations. Once weights have been recorded, the contents of full boxes/bags are emptied onto a sorting table for a visual quality control check. Any contamination, or non-accepted packaging is removed and managed accordingly (recycled where possible). 

The cases are broken down into fine particles to delaminate the materials. This then goes through our proprietary separation process, which involves air density & electrostatic separation, to separate the plastic & aluminium. Once separated the aluminium and plastic material is kept in bulk bags until enough material is ready to be sent to end-users.
