Product Care’s BC LightRecycle program began in 2010 and is currently limited to residential-use fluorescent lamps. This program will expand on July 1, 2012 by Product Care to provide a compliance option for all obligated parties, and will capture all lamps, ballasts and fixtures sold into the residential, commercial and industrial sectors in BC.
The British Columbia Recycling Regulation requires the “producers” (typically first importers, including retailers, distributors and manufacturers) to be part of an approved stewardship program by July 1, 2012.
Joining the LightRecycle Program:
If your company is obligated under the BC Recycling Regulation, becoming a Product Care member for the LightRecycle program will enable your business to comply with these requirements. Product Care membership is available to all obligated producers and offers a “turn‐key” solution for compliance with the BC Recycling Regulation. Program members are not required to take back old products and there is no fee to join the LightRecycle program.
