LIGHTING, ELECTRICAL, & BATTERY RECYCLING
Recolight offer a FREE recycling service for waste lamps, in compliance with the WEEE regulations. This is a FREE service because we are funded by our Members, the lighting industry, and operate as a not-for-profit WEEE Compliance Scheme.
The free recycling service is for Recolight Producer Members, their customers, and end users.
We collect all lighting in scope of the WEEE regulations. To date Recolight has recycled over 330 million lamps. This is more WEEE lighting than all UK Compliance schemes combined.
Recolight recycle more than lamps, giving you a complete WEEE service.
- Batteries – not classified as WEEE, but classed as hazardous waste and must be recycled responsibly.
- All electrical waste covered by the WEEE Regulations.
- FREE Luminaire recycling for Recolight Producer Members’ non-household obligated* waste.
As a WEEE producer compliance scheme, Recolight ensure that the waste we manage is collected and treated responsibly within the UK, using authorised treatment plants. Recolight also organise regular, comprehensive audits of our contracted operators to verify compliance with the relevant UK Regulations and Recolight’s own criteria.
*Refer to the Recolight glossary for definition of obligated waste.
