BULBSTORE CONTAINER

Recolight’s Bulbstore® container is designed for household waste low energy light bulbs. We wanted to make it easier for consumers to recycle. Your local household waste recycling centres collect WEEE lighting, and additionally,  you can find the Bulbstore® container at retailers across the UK.

At your Household Waste Recycling Centre look for the WEEE recycling area. A variety of containers are used, but there will be one clearly labelled for lighting.

  • Bulbstore containers are for small compact light bulbs only.
  • Fluorescent tubes can only be recycled at your household waste recycling centre.
