2013 lamp recycling hits all time high

Provisional 2013 recycling figures released to WEEE schemes by the Environment Agency today show the UK lamp recycling rate increased from 39.5% in 2012 to 52.8% in 2013.  The UK luminaire rate has also improved from 0.6% in 2012 to 2% in 2013.

Commenting on the news, Recolight Chief Executive Nigel Harvey said, “We are very pleased by the strong growth in lamp recycling figures. This is the UK’s best lamp recycling rate ever. The recast of the WEEE directive includes a national target for all WEEE categories of 45% by 2016 and 65% by 2019. The UK data shows that the lighting industry is well placed to meet these targets. It is particularly pleasing to note the strong year on year growth since 2008, when the rate stood at 23.2%. The Recolight collection network now includes 2300 sites, and has made a major contribution to the growth.”
