Prince Edward Island

On November 18, 2014, PEI Minister of Environment, Labour and Justice and Attorney General Janice Sherry approved the Prince Edward Island Lamp Stewardship Program Plan submitted by ReGeneration (as Product Care Association). Read the approval letter here.

The Prince Edward Island Lamp Stewardship Program Plan will become operational on April 1, 2015. For more information, please access the update notice sent on December 12, 2014.

Prince Edward Island’s Department of Environment, Labour and Justice passed the Materials Stewardship and Recycling Regulations under the PEI Environmental Act on June 21, 2014 requiring product stewardship programs for lamp products, as well as automotive salvage and scrap metal, electronic products, oil and glycol products, lead-acid batteries, and pharmaceuticals.

The regulation includes all lamp technologies, regardless of type of user (i.e. residential and IC&I lamps are all included), but not fixtures.

The program accepts household quantities of the following types of  light bulbs and tubes for recycling without charge at collection sites designated for consumers:

  • Fluorescent tubes (straight, curved, U, circular, square etc.)
  • Incandescent and halogen bulbs
  • Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs)
  • Light emitting diodes (LEDs)
  • High-intensity discharge lamps (HIDs)

Maximum Return Limit

Maximum limit for return at one time in the consumer collection system is a combined total of 16 fluorescent tubes and/or a combined total of 16 other bulb types (i.e. any combination of CFL, HID etc. to a total of 16).
