Which bin/container should I use? Clear polythene bag
What can you do with it? You can recycle all of your light bulb types using the kerbside collection service, this includes, standard bulbs, LED and low energy light bulbs (excluding fluorescent bulbs).

Please place them inside a clear polythene bag and pop this on top of the purple top bin on your scheduled recycling collection day.

Please do not tie the bags to the bin handles, the crew wear protective gloves and this makes it extremely difficult for them to untie the bags.

You can also take your light bulbs to either of our Household Recycling Centres (HRCs).

Please do not put bulbs and batteries in the same clear bag.
