Flouro light tubes Recolight was set up by the lighting industry in 2005 to take on their WEEE responsibility for recycling when the WEEE regulations were introduced into the UK. They’re also not for profit. Visit www. for how schools can dispose of the fluoro tubes. We cannot collect them ourselves and they cannot be brought to the Veolia Southwark Reuse and Recycling Centre.
