How do I go green?

Take advantage of natural daylight by setting up your desk or favorite reading chair by a window. Consider efficient lighting like LED or fluorescent. Light only the area you are in and turn off the lights when you leave the room.

There are as many ways to reuse light fixtures as there are creative minds. There are also as many clever ways to make interesting light fixtures out of other reused materials.

Not all facilities listed below are part of the provincial program and may charge a fee for drop off. Contact facilities directly regarding restrictions and charges.
