Light bulbs



mixed light bulbs, lightbulb, incandescent, LED, light emitting diode

Older style 'incandescent' light bulbs aren't recyclable and should be thrown away in your rubbish bin. Energy saving lightbulbs are accepted at north London's reuse and recycling centres (RRCs) for recycling, or find other recycling points (opens in a new window). Light bulbs labelled "LED" (meaning "light emitting diode") are a type of energy-saving light bulb and can also be recycled.

Do not put any sort of lightbulb in your mixed dry recycling bin as lightbulb glass cannot be recycled with the other glass collected that way.
