Of those surveyed only 18 per cent were aware that CFLs need to be recycled through specialised recycling facilities. When asked what they thought they would do when their old CFLs reached end-of-life, 69 per cent said they would throw them away in the normal household waste.
Research commissioned by the Lighting Industry Federation, in partnership with recycling scheme Recolight, the Lighting Association and leading lamp producers, shows a lack of awareness amongst consumers regarding the requirement for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to be recycled.
