Light Bulbs

Light Bulbs

  • Light bulbs should NOT be put into glass banks
  • Energy efficient light bulbs can be recycled at your local recycling centre. Incandescent 'older style' light bulbs can't be recycled and should be disposed of in your normal household waste
  • Check out our light bulb recycling section for details on how, why and where to recycle your energy saving light bulbs


If a low-energy bulb gets smashed, the room should be vacated for at least 15 minutes. Use rubber gloves to place the broken bulb into a sealed plastic bag - and take it to the nearest appropriate recycling centre for disposal.
