(PRWEB UK) 22 April 2013
It has been reported in Waste Management World that according to Recolight, there has been a year on year increase in lamp recycling rates since 2008, the first full year of recorded data. Recolight was set up in 2005 as a not for profit organisation by the UK’s leading lamp producers, GE, Osram, Havells Sylvania and Phillips. It states that in 2012, the tonnage of waste lamps recycled by all Producer Compliance Schemes in the UK was 39.5% of the tonnage of all lamps put on the market.
The specialist WEEE compliance scheme for the lighting industry also claims that during the last year, it funded virtually all the business lamp recycling carried out, as well as a sizable amount of the household lamp recycling.
