Woking Borough Council launches an innovative recycling solution for low-energy light bulbs


Councillor Beryl Hunwicks, Portfolio Holder for Waste and Recycling at Woking Borough Council, officially opened a new recycling service at Kestrel Way Recycling Site providing low-energy light bulb recycling facilities to the people of Woking.

 

In partnership with recycling specialist Recolight, Woking Borough Council is now offering this completely free collection service to local residents. Specially designed collection containers, where anyone can recycle their old low-energy light bulbs, are available at two locations across the borough:

  • Kestrel Way Recycling Site
  • Sainsbury’s Brookwood

 

All low-energy light bulbs collected will be sent for recycling at approved treatment facilities.

 

Launching the scheme, Councillor Hunwicks, said: “This container from Recolight will provide an additional recycling service and support our commitment to continue to help residents to recycle as much waste as possible in our quest to push our recycling rate to over 60%.”

 

Recolight CEO Nigel Harvey said; “This is an important and exciting partnership which will open up vital new channels for the public to recycle their old low-energy light-bulbs. People want to recycle their old bulbs but are often unsure of where the nearest facilities are. These containers will help make a difference to recycling in the local area.”
