Recolight have containers for lamps, batteries, and electrical items
If you collect 1000 lamps every three months, Recolight provide a free container, collection and recycling.
If you collect less than 1000 lamps in three months, you can still benefit from our free collection and recycling by renting a container from us.
The RB19, RC and RPB containers are designed for the storage of waste Gas Discharge Lamps and LEDs included in scope of the WEEE regulations pending collection for recycling.
The RPB can also be used for storage of small electrical items.
- Batteries and lamps must be removed from luminaires and placed in a separate container.
- All containers must be free of packaging.
- Lead time of six to ten working days, so please don’t wait until you can fit no more lamps in.
Have a look at the section on managing your site. Where you’ll find guidance on the correct storage for lamps, luminaires, electricals, and batteries
