Recolight’s development of the Reuse Hub shows the company’s commitment to encourage and facilitate reuse in the lighting industry.
The Reuse Hub is a lighting digital marketplace.
Many manufacturers hold unsold stock; surplus new lighting taking up valuable warehouse space and decisions to discard this stock are often made at short notice.
Currently, very few used luminaires are reused. Some are in very good condition before removal and therefore a lot of the value and embedded carbon is lost if they are recycled.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you, as a potential Donor to hand over surplus and used products to third-parties who can put the products to good use.
At Recolight, we recycle, but as we move towards a Circular Economy model, recycling is not always the best solution. Recolight is under a legal obligation to prioritise reuse over recycling, so we need to facilitate and encourage reuse.
The Reuse Hub user login is for registered users.
