Protect Our Waterways: Contact Lens Disposal

An informative article has been circulating in the media regarding the persistence of contact lenses in the wastewater treatment system.  At Fox Metro, we fully support the initiative to keep plastics out of the environment.  As a reminder, only the 3 P’s – Pee, Poo, and toilet Paper – should be flushed.  Everything else should go into a trashcan, including contact lenses.
