Light Fixtures added to program

January 14, 2014

In addition to collecting the following types of light bulbs for recycling: UV and germicidal lamps, incandescent and halogen bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), light emitting diodes (LEDs), ultra high performance (UHP) lamps, and high-intensity discharge lamps (HIDs), the depot is now accepting Lighting Fixtures.


A residential Lighting Fixture is any product with a primary purpose to provide light. Common examples of residential-use lighting fixtures include floor lamps, chandeliers, table lamps, ceiling lights, flashlights and Christmas lights.


All bulbs/lamps and lighting fixtures should be handed directly to a depot staff member and if a bulb is broken it MUST be bagged and taped/zip locked shut before dropping it off (this is for the safety of depot users and staff).


For additional details about this program, visit the LightRecycle website For more information on safe handling and clean up of broken bulbs, visit Health Canada's website at or call the BC Recycling Hotline at 604-RECYCLE.
