Light Fixtures added to program
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).
