Hearing Aid Recycling Program (HARP)


The need is great.  The World Health Organization estimates that 360 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss.   Yet, current annual production of hearing aids meets less than 10% of the global need.  The Lions Hearing Aid Recycling Program (HARP) enables Lions to provide affordable hearing aids for individuals with limited financial resources.

Hearing Aid Recycling Program Centers

Lions currently maintain hearing aid recycling centers in Canada and in the United States.  View a list of the recycling program centers.

HARP Collection Resources

Resources are available for your club to promote hearing aid recycling and increase public participation in your community.

Lions club and district officers can place an order for materials.

  • Determine support from your club, district or multiple district.
  • Follow Board Policy for the Lions Clubs International Hearing Aid Recycling Program.
  • Determine a budget for the ongoing operation of a Lions HARP.
