Hello all

How do you dispose of your used lamps/tubes etc and do you get this free ? would you have some contacts I'm in Kingston upon Thames area.

Looked at CEF electrical but they charge every time for collection and for paperwork etc

Thanks

We used to get our supplier to take them when they made a delivery but then they started charging so at the minute we take them to the local council ourselves

Hi Gaz I use CEF and they don`t charge, well they do sort of. The prices they quote you for goods include a small charge, something like 10p and this covers the removal and disposal of old tubes/bulbs. So every time they deliver they pick up all old ones.

Same as me and i did it on the way home on split shifts, it was not too far out of my way and it made room for the new stock as my storage was very limited. [Like.png]

We used Balcan because I inherited 300 from the previous site manager who just left them in the basement. It was £200 for them to collect so not cheap but they crushed them on site and took them away. Think i will take the next lot to the dump myself now we have a waste carriers licence

I use CEF as well. Yes they charge a small amount per tube, and for a cert, but at least I can prove they have been disposed of responsibly.
