  • Sample imageLightbulbs

    Please try to buy low energy lightbulbs, particularly for rooms where lights are left on for long periods of time. This will save money on energy and by not replacing lightbulbs so often.
    Low energy lightbulbs can be recycled at your nearest household waste recycling site.
    Other types of (incandescent) lightbulbs cannot be recycled at present. These should be wrapped in newspaper and placed in your black household bin.
