How to dispose of compact fluorescent lightbulbs.

Energy saving compact fluorescent lightbulbs contain a minute amount of mercury (just enough to cover the tip of a ballpoint pen) and so should not be put in the normal household waste, but disposed of at a recycling centre.

Several hundred Sainsbury’s branches now offer this facility and the lamp recyclers Recolight have also provided a helpful map to help find your nearest branch.

Of course, if you have any queries about the disposal of energy saving lamps, our experts will be able to help you – you can phone on 01462 490066 or email us at
