Inner West Council

Light Globe Recycling

Compact fluorescent (CFL) light globes use alot less energy to run, but can cause problems if thrown into your regular rubbish bin. These light globes contain mercury, and if placed in landfill, this can leach into the surrounding environment.

Recycle your unwanted light globes at Council's Customer Service Centre. Please wrap globes in newspaper for disposal to ensure they are not broken during transport. Please note that globes greater than 30cm in length cannot be accepted.
