Recolight announces initiatives to reduce unnecessary recycling

Recolight has announced two new initiatives to provide practical help for Recolight producer members to more fully embrace the circular economy.

Announcing the service to make used luminaires available for re-use, Recolight CEO Nigel Harvey said: “Every year, we recycle hundreds of thousands of light fittings. Some of those could be re-manufactured and re-used. We want to collect as much data as possible regarding fittings scheduled for disposal – and to make that information, and the fittings, available to companies that may be able to upgrade or remanufacture the products.”

The second service is focused on surplus new lighting equipment that is no longer offered for sale. Introducing the service, Recolight collections and membership Development Coordinator Francesca Cameron said: “At Recolight we get requests to arrange the recycling of redundant or remaindered stock, often at short notice, to free up warehouse space. Rather than recycle it, we want to make that product available to other organisations such as charities. Recolight members will be given access to an app that allows them to upload details of products. Recolight will then collect them for free, and store them for free, if a recipient cannot immediately be found.”
