As a consumer, where do I take my residential-use lighting products to be recycled?

There are more than 200 LightRecycle collection sites for consumers to drop off their burnt-out lights (bulbs and tubes). Ensure that the collection site accepts the products you have for recycling by indicating whether you have residential-use lights or fixtures. You can also call the Recycling Hotline at 604-732-9253 in the Lower Mainland and 1-800-667-4321 in the rest of BC.

The maximum limit for returns in a single visit is a total of 16 fluorescent tubes and a total of 16 other bulb types. Remember to handle lights carefully. Do not break or puncture them.

Over 80 (and in most cases, separate) collection sites are also available for consumers to recycle their residential-use lighting fixtures, ranging from flashlights to table lamps and chandeliers.
