Drop it off: light globes

You can recycle light globes through the Backlight program by dropping them off at participating Mitre 10, True Value Hardware, and Ikea stores.

Simply take them to the store and place them in the light globe recycling box/bin. 

Your local lighting shop may also provide a recycling service, but there may be a cost involved. 

Light globes are considered hazardous, and can’t be recycled through your yellow bin. If you can’t take your globes to a drop-off point, as a last resort you can place them into your landfill bin, but place them inside a bag first, so no one can be injured by them.
