Light bulb recycling

Find out where to recycle light bulbs in the borough.
Bank Holiday waste collections

All collections will take place one day later due to the Spring Bank Holiday.

Make sure the bins are out for collection on your revised collection day.

Usual service will resume week commencing Monday 5 June.

Old-style incandescent light bulbs are not recyclable and must be disposed of in your refuse bin. New-style energy-efficient light bulbs are recyclable, but must be disposed of at participating light bulb recycling locations.

Energy efficient light bulbs can be disposed of by taking them to the reuse and recycling centre at Landmann Way in New Cross.

They can also be taken to Recolight light bulb recycling points within the borough.
