Recycle Your Old Light Bulbs for Free at Ryness.co.uk


2 October 2009

Ryness.co.uk is more than the best place to buy lighting online; it’s your online resource for the entire lighting life cycle. You can recycle your old bulbs, shop online for new bulbs (even the old fashioned lighbulbs soon to be banned), choose from a wide range of energy efficient lighting, shop for lamps and other electrical goods, and then - at the end of the life cycle - recycle the old bulbs with Ryness again.


There’s no need to go anywhere else for your lighting needs.
Every type of light bulb can be, and should be, recycled: the metal and glass is extracted and sold back into the market place, lessening the need for new materials. Energy saving fluorescent tubes and compact bulbs have to be recycled as they are classified as hazardous waste due to their mercury content. It’s a frightening fact that the mercury from just one fluorescent tube is sufficient to pollute 30,000 litres of water beyond the safe drinking level in the UK. And yet some people purchase these bulbs in a bid to be more environmentally aware, only to discard of the tubes and bulbs instead of recycling them.


Ryness Lighting & Electrical understands that this is mostly a case of ignorance, and partly a matter of practicality. That is why the company has a whole section devoted to this green issue on its website, and to help tackle this problem, offers the free bulb recycling service to all its customers. Ryness are charged a recycling fee by the company’s light bulb manufacturers which allows the company to send old and broken bulbs back for recycling on behalf of its customers. The service is entirely free of charge for customers, Ryness simply asks them to refrain from throwing the bulbs away and instead to either bring them to any one of the Ryness stores in and around London (full store listings are available at www.ryness.co.uk) or send them back to them at 189 Clapham Road, London, SW9 0QE.


Ryness.co.uk has long been the go-to site for cheap lightbulbs and all sorts of great value domestic lighting. It’s free light bulb recycling service is part of the company’s wider commitment to a green policy. In addition to offering bulb recycling, Ryness are proud to stock one of the widest online ranges of energy saving lightbulbs and energy saving lamps.
