Record year for WEEE compliance Member growth

Recolight has seen that fastest member growth in 2015 since the start of operations. We were also the fastest growing PCS scheme in the UK in 2015.

At the end of each year a few members leave our scheme as they no longer need compliance. We started 2015 with 135 members and grew to 166 by the end of the year.

This is an incredible achievement for Recolight, with members joining us because we provide more than just compliance.

Recolight are active in lobbying the government to make sure any changes to the regulations are right for our members and the lighting industry. Because we specialise in just WEEE lighting, we fully understand the beneficial effects upon the environment. We will also survey our members and ask for how changes may affect them, and ask for our members to respond directly to consultations.

Recolight supports foundation of new European trade association of WEEE lighting compliance schemes, EucoLight

A new European association focused on WEEE in the lighting sector has been established.  EucoLight has been created to give a voice to WEEE compliance schemes that are specialised in managing the collection and recycling of lamps and luminaires.

The WEEE directive, as recast, probably has greater impact on lighting than on any other industry sector. There is probably a greater number of lamps recycled in Europe than all other types of electrical equipment. Furthermore, unlike most other items of WEEE there is no value associated with waste lamps. Most lamps are also fragile and hazardous, making them difficult to transport, and requiring specialist recycling facilities.
