Lumicom is Leading the Way in Luminaire Recycling

Lumicom continues to lead the market in luminaire recycling and in 2009 recycled more than all rival compliance schemes put together. This success is attributed to the organisation’s commitment to achieving full compliance backed by a high quality service.

Geoff Hall, JOB TITLE, commented: “We were set up to meet the industry’s responsibilities in full, not to avoid them or minimise them. Not only do we finance the recycling but we also require our recyclers to use the best available treatment practices and advise them on the recyclability of new materials being used in the manufacture of luminaires.”

To that end, Lumicom only uses recyclers that are fully authorised by the Environment Agency and capable of meeting the stringent recycling targets that require 70% recovery by average weight and 50% re-use and recycling or components, material and other substances.

Lumicom is also committed to keeping its members up-to-date on changes and prospective changes in the WEEE Regulations, BIS Guidance and other environmental initiatives. To reinforce this, Lumicom is supporting a series of road shows designed to improve understanding of luminaire recycling issues.

Angus Shield of Thorn Lighting observed: “Being a member of Lumicom gives Thorn the confidence to assure our clients, who have committed themselves to improving the environmental sustainability of their businesses, that we share their values and that we want all of our WEEE responsibilities to be met in full”.
