How to recycle

Energy efficient lightbulbs are a type of fluorescent lamp and can be recycled at your local recycling centre.

Collection points can also be found in some stores – so instead of making a special trip to the tip, you can now recycle your old low-energy bulbs whilst you’re out shopping. Check this store locator to find your nearest collection point.

Other stores that accept low energy lightbulbs include Ikea and some branches of Tesco (that have special recycling units in store).
