Recolight announce record Membership growth for WEEE compliance
During 2021, a total of 19 companies joined the Recolight WEEE scheme. And from the beginning of 2022, another eight companies joined Recolight, five of which transferred from other schemes.
The five companies transferring their compliance are TRILUX Lighting Ltd, C.U. Phosco Lighting Ltd, Urbis Schreder Ltd, OrangeTek Ltd, and Siteco UK Ltd. We also welcome Orluna LED Technologies Ltd, Koro Handels GMBH, and Target Sports Ltd as Members.
“We are delighted that such important lighting brands have transferred their WEEE compliance to Recolight. We pride ourselves on giving the customers of all our Members the most comprehensive free lamp and luminaire collection and recycling service. We very much look forward to supporting our new Members and their customers as they transition towards a circular economy.” Said Nigel Harvey, Recolight CEO. Towards the end of 2021, the company launched new circular economy services to facilitate reuse of lighting equipment, and to avoid the unnecessary recycling of surplus new lighting.
Recolight’s commitment to the circular economy and to protecting the environment are key drivers for our new Members:
“For TRILUX, there can only be one answer to the global challenge of climate change: sustainable management and continuous improvement. Recolight share our vision and hence are our preferred WEEE partner.”
Wissam Choucair, Commercial Director at TRILUX Lighting Ltd
“Sustainability is very important to CU Phosco Lighting. We are confident that working with Recolight will help us to further minimize our environmental impact.”
Nicola Marques, Marketing Director at C.U. Phosco Lighting Ltd
“The environmental credentials of all our suppliers is important to Urbis Schreder, so one of the reasons we chose to move our WEEE compliance to Recolight was their public commitment to achieving net zero by 2030.”
Kate Pickard, Marketing Communications Manager at Urbis Schreder Ltd
“At OrangeTek we are working hard to implement circular economy principles, and being part of the Recolight scheme will help us achieve those goals.”
Wilbur Tarn, Director at OrangeTek Ltd
“An increasing number of our customers request collection and recycling of waste lighting. Working with Recolight ensures our customers’ waste is treated efficiently and responsibly.”
Paul Coggins, Director, Siteco UK Ltd
The Recolight WEEE scheme now has 198 producer members. They range from the world’s largest lighting companies, to small start-ups.
