Product Care Working to Restore Light Bulb Recycling in Salmon Arm

Light Bulb Recycling Change 2021

Friday, October 22, 2021

Update:

Product Care is actively seeking to restore recycling services for lights in Salmon Arm as soon as possible.

Under the BC Ministry of Environment's Recycling Regulation, Product Care is the non-profit organization responsible for providing recycling solutions for post-consumer products including light bulbs.

In the interim, residents are encouraged to hold on to their used bulbs or take them to the nearest collection sites in Enderby and Chase, if necessary. The CSRD will update residents as soon as collection services resume.

Light bulb recycling no longer available in the Shuswap

Shuswap residents will have to change their habits when it comes to recycling light bulbs.

Effective immediately, there is no longer a site in Salmon Arm that will accept household light bulbs for drop off for recycling. The closest Product Care depots collecting light bulbs are:

  • Central Hardware, located at 701 Bass Avenue, Enderby;
  • Chase Home Hardware Building Center, located at 197 Shuswap Avenue, Chase.

Under the BC Ministry of Environment's Recycling Regulation, Product Care is the non-profit organization responsible for providing recycling solutions for post-consumer products including light bulbs. This recycling program is funded by the fees that Product Care collects when light bulbs are purchased.

If you have concerns around not having access to a light bulb recycling program in the region, please contact your local MLA's office.

You can also email comments or concerns via email to Extended Producer Responsibility or Light Recycle Information.

More information can be found at the ProductCare Recycling website.

The CSRD will update residents if and when a new Product Care depot is operational in the Shuswap.
