Recolight collects more than 1000 tonnes of light fittings each year.
Currently, virtually none are reused, although some are in very good condition before removal.
Much of the value is destroyed by recycling, can we change that?
About the service
Collecting better data on product to be removed during Recolight Producer Member projects will help us identify those that may be reusable (probably a minimum of 100-200 identical fittings).
That data will be provided to potential remanufacturers which could include the original producer of the product. Fittings will be delivered on a free of charge basis to remanufacturer in the UK. The remanufacturer takes ownership and responsibility for product thereafter including compliance.
To make it happen, we will need trials and further discussions with stakeholders. We would love to hear from:

Recolight want to make it as easy as possible for a manufacturer (donor) to hand over new lighting equipment that they will no longer offer for sale. This could be ex-demonstration stock, unsold stock, or returned stock in “as new” condition. It also needs to be as easy as possible for a third-party company (recipient) to receive that product so that it can be offered for sale, or otherwise put into service.

The service will match unsold stock with potential recipients. New stock will be collected free of charge by Recolight from Recolight Producer Members (donors).
Recolight Producer Members will be given access to an online inventory portal to upload product details, on which we ask you to:
If a recipient is not available immediately, Recolight will store the stock free of charge.
Potential recipients (which could include charities, voluntary sector, schools and others) will be given access to the portal to view products available and request stock. Recipients will:
