We are often asked for advice on the best way to dispose of light bulbs, fluorescent tubes and batteries. Putting these items in with the general waste can cause harm to the environment. Energy saving light bulbs and tubes should be taken to your local 'Re-use and Recycling Centre'. Most batteries can be collected in a plastic bag and put in with your 'Green Box Recycling' or taken to your local 'Re-use and Recycling Centre'. Some shops also provide battery recycling points. Contact your local council for more details.
