Q3 lamp recycling data could lead to higher WEEE costs

The latest lamp recycling data was released by the Environment Agency at the end of November.  This shows that 4141 tonnes have been collected up to end September 2016.  If collections continue at the same rate to the end of the year, the national target would be missed by around 1000 tonnes.READ MORE >

Recolight are pleased to have been instrumental in the establishment of the new WEEE PCS Balancing System, or PBS.

Most Local Authority household waste recycling centres collect WEEE.  And under WEEE regulation 34, a Local Authority can require any PCS to make a WEEE collection, from any site in the UK, subject to certain conditions.  The availability of regulation 34 is good news for Local Authorities – it is the mechanism included in the 2013 WEEE regulations which ensures an LA can always get their WEEE collected for free.READ MORE >

Recolight RB19 container

The right container for waste lamps

Breakage of waste lamps, either when they are placed in a container, or during transport, is probably the biggest source of fugitive mercury emissions associated with lamp recycling.  As a result, the correct design of waste lamp containers is vital to ensure that lamps can be collected and transported intact.  That is why Recolight has paid very considerable attention to the design and testing of the principal container used within our network.
