Collecting lamps and luminaires

On behalf of LightRec and Wecycle, Partners for Innovation investigated the collection of lamps and luminaires by housing corporations.

Main conclusions:

  • Each year about 1 million fluorescent lamps are being disposed of;
  • The majority is collected by installers and other subcontractors;
  • Housing corporations lack insight in the way lamps and luminaires are being disposed of.

Partners for Innovation made recommendations on how to improve the situation.
