Storing waste lamps & electricals during the coronavirus crisis

For organisations providing essential services during the coronavirus crisis, Recolight has announced help with storage of additional waste, while the Environment Agency has published guidance for sites that may exceed their permits during the current lockdown period.

The Recolight Network for dropping off small quantiles of waste lamps and luminaries is temporally closed. This may result in some waste containers reaching capacity. In such situations, Recolight can supply an additional container to allow the safe storage of additional waste. 

In addition, on 6 April, the Environment Agency announced that where a collection point operates a permitted site, that site may temporarily store more waste than the permit allows, but only for wastes covered by the permit. Recolight collection points that do not operate under an S2 exemption will benefit from this change.

The Recolight team of WEEE experts are available to offer specialist waste storage advice and can be contacted by email via info@recolight.co.uk
