About Light Recycling
We make it easy for you to safely recycle your burnt out or unwanted light bulbs and tubes by providing free drop-off.
If you live in British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec, or Prince Edward Island, you can drop-off fluorescent bulbs, fixtures*, and other types of bulbs for recycling – it’s free! Drop-off locations include recycling centres, bottle depots, and retail stores.
Use our Recycling Locator to find a drop-off location and see what products they accept. For a complete list of accepted products, details on recycling large quantities of lights (commercial volumes), and other information, visit your province’s page:
Previously known as LightRecycle, our light recycling program was established in BC in 2010 in response to recycling regulations and requirements for mercury-containing bulbs in Canada. The program has since expanded to Manitoba, Quebec, and Prince Edward Island.
*Lighting fixtures including string lights and ballasts are only accepted in British Columbia.
