A survey conducted by Recolight showed that 95% of 780 respondents think all lamp producers should offer free recycling for their customers.
90.4% of people asked in the survey, thought the government should set higher recycling targets.
Under the WEEE compliance, Lightbulbs Direct are happy to offer free recycling to those who buy light bulbs from us.
CEO of Recolight, Nigel Harvey, said on the results:
The message is clear: business users want all lamp producers to offer free lamp recycling. As this is a possible outcome of the consultation, business users might just get what they have asked for. It is right that producers take responsibility for their market share of recycling. This change will help promote recycling throughout the lighting industry.
