Fluorescent tubes and bulbs and most other kinds of bulbs can be returned at no charge to designated retailers and at the Hartland Recycling Area. Product Care operates LightRecycle, the BC light bulb and lighting fixture stewardship program. Go to Accepted Lighting Prooducts for a detailed list of accepted bulbs and go to Collection Site Locator for a detailed list of LightRecycle depots. In these early days of this newly expanded program, it is a good idea to phone the drop off depots before going just to be sure they are set up for the newly included products.
Note: Some of the facilities listed below are not part of the free product stewardship program so charges may apply.
Also accepted are accidently broken, residential-use, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and fluorescent tubes in sealed plastic bags or sealed glass containers.
If you do break a fluorescent bulb, place the broken item in a sealed plastic bag or a sealed glass container and take it to a nearby LightRecycle depot. For more details go to Frequently Asked Questions.
