Recycling Light Bulbs
I've just had an idea...
Can I recycle light bulbs?
No, normal household lightbulbs cannot be recycled via curbside collection schemes.
How can I help?
If you are a business, try using fluorescent lightbulbs.They only use around a quarter the energy of a normalbulb, and last a lot longer. Ultimately helping the environment, and saving you money!
Businesses can pay for fluorescent bulbs to be recycled.
How should I dispose of burnt out bulbs? Lightbulbs should be disposed of properly- try not to throw them away with household rubbish. Manage them like other household hazardous waste.
