Light bulbs and fluorescent lighting

Please do not put fluorescent tubes or energy saving bulbs in your waste wheeled bin as they contain components or chemicals that need specialist treatment. 

However, broken ordinary (incandescent) light bulbs can be wrapped and placed in your waste wheeled bin.

Please do not put any type of light bulb into glass bottle banks as they are made out of a different type of glass and contain metal parts which can contaminate the glass recycling process.
