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.
