The LightRecycle program expanded last week to now include collection sites for all types of lighting products (including light bulbs and fixtures) from residential, industrial, commercial and institutional applications.
The program includes local collection sites listed below for your information and to help readers learn where they can recycle their lighting products.
There are six Kelowna/West Kelowna collection sites for residents to drop off their burnt out light bulbs/tubes.
The local locations include:
• Westbank Home Hardware (2A-2475 Dobbin Rd., West Kelowna)
• London Drugs Westbank (2151 Louie Dr., West Kelowna)
• Boucherie Bottle Depot (2711 Kyle Rd., West Kelowna)
• London Drug Spall Plaza (400-1950 Harvey Ave, Kelowna)
• RONA (1711 Springfield Rd, Kelowna)
• Battery Doctors (1972 Windsor Rd, Kelowna)
There are four collection sites in the region for residential-use lighting fixtures as well, located at the Columbia Bottle Depots on Dease Road and St. Paul Street, Planet Earth Recycling at 2035 Louie Dr. in Westbank, and Boucherie Bottle Depot in West Kelowna.
You can get the full information on the website at http://www.lightrecycle.ca/consumers/find-a-depot/residential-lighting-fixtures
There are two Kelowna-area collection sites for industrial/commercial/institutional lamps—The Battery Doctors and Boucherie Bottle Depot and Self Storage.
There are also two collection sites in the area for commercial fixtures and lighting ballasts—Knox Mountain Metals (930 Bay Ave., Kelowna) and Planet Earth Recycling. The program’s website, www.lightrecycle.ca, includes search tools that allow both residents and businesses to easily find the nearest collection site for the products they have to recycle.
Large volume generators of lighting products can also call LightRecycle to schedule a free pick-up of their lamps if they have more than a pallet.
