The Recolight free waste lamp collection service

The Recolight lamp collection service includes free collection, recycling, and consignment notes. For quantities over 1000 lamps each quarter, Recolight also provide a free container. If you collect less than 1000 lamps each quarter, a container lease option is available, but collection, recycling and consignment notes are still free.

For smaller quantities, Recolight has established a network of drop off points located at Electrical Wholesalers across the UK. Search the map found on the homepage of the Recolight website.

Recolight still come across many FM companies that are being charged for their waste lamp recycling. All too often, they are not aware that under the WEEE regulations, they should be able to access a free recycling service, funded by lamp producers.

WEEE compliance & recycling explained

The WEEE regulations were introduced to the UK 10 years ago to make producers take responsibility for recycling electronic equipment at the end of its life. This concept is referred to as Extended Producer Responsibility.

In the UK there are around 35 WEEE compliance schemes all operating different business models. Recolight’s operating model is unique for WEEE lighting. Recolight scheme members pay a small fee to Recolight for each lighting unit they place on the UK market. Funds received are used to provide a free lamp and luminaire collection and recycling service.
