British Columbia

Large volume generators (LVGs) can recycle light bulbs, tubes, fixtures and ballasts free of charge with LightRecycle, providing the required quantities are met.

A range of recycling options exist through the program for large volume generators with lighting products used in institutional, commercial or industrial applications. Depending on the type and volume of products, large volume generators such as businesses, contractor, relampers, schools, hospitals and building managers may apply for a no-charge direct pick up. For a full list of accepted products, click here.

Please note: while the program will pick-up lamps directly from large volume generators (contractors, schools, hospitals, building managers, municipalities etc.) with enough lamps to qualify for this service, generators do not receive payment for their lamps unless they are acting as a service provider to the program, as outlined below.

An extensive network of collection sites also exist for generators with large volumes of lighting products to drop off across the province.

Are you a homeowner/consumer with a small quantity of light bulbs or tubes?
LightRecycle includes over 200 collection sites for consumers with household quantities of residential-use lamps (maximum of 16). See the BC Consumers page.

Crushed Bulbs

Large volume generators that have consolidated crushed light bulbs (using specialized equipment for this purpose) will qualify for a free pick-up service. Replacement drums are supplied, at no charge, upon request when drums are picked up. Intentionally crushed light bulbs are NOT accepted at any LightRecycle collection site.
