It has been reported in Lighting.co.uk that the call was met with great relief from the lighting industry, with 256 responses received in total between April and June. The reaction was that the first option of maintaining the status quo was not sustainable, with options 3 and 4 receiving the most votes. The third option was setting targets for compliance schemes, with a “compliance fee” if targets were not met, with the fourth being to match election sites to collection schemes. The government is set to release a draft regulation by the end of the month with a view to bringing the new law into force in January.

The LED Lighting from Visible Lighting is eco- friendly, and the specialists have a natural interest in the impact of lighting waste on the environment. Reflecting on the WEEE consultation responses, a representative from the firm explains the benefits of light emitting diodes.

“It is important that attention is paid to the safe disposal and recycling of waste electrical products, especially when we consider that traditional bulbs contain hazardous substances such as Mercury. In contrast, LEDs do not contain these harmful materials. They are also more durable and have a longer lifespan than incandescent bulbs, lasting an impressive 50,000 hours, meaning there is less volume of waste too. Our advice to those considering their carbon footprint therefore will be to convert to energy saving LEDs.”
