Small firms get extended lamp recycling options from Recolight

Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) compliance scheme Recolight is to extend its range of collection options to improve access to its lamp (light bulb) recycling facilities for smaller businesses.

Under the new scheme, businesses can lease a container for the duration of a refit or re-lamping project for a charge, which will then be collected and the contents recycled at no cost. Businesses that collect fewer than 1,000 lamps in a three-month period can also lease a container.

Previously businesses which did not meet the 1,000 lamps every three months threshold would have relied on the facilities of an already open Recolight collection point for recycling.

Chief executive Nigel Harvey said: “We are constantly looking at ways to improve the collection services that we offer, and to increase the access and ease of recycling of waste lamps.

“The lease of containers in one-off circumstances means that contractors and other businesses can be certain they are acting in an environmentally friendly way during their project. By making it easier for businesses with fewer lamps to recycle, we hope to be able to ensure as many lamps as possible are recycled.”
