Before recycling your lighbulbs, remove all packaging and electrical tape.
Separate different types of bulbs:

There are different containers at La Collette to recycle the different types and sizes of bulbs and tubes.
Make sure the bulbs are packed to avoid damage during transport. If they are damaged, put them in a plastic bag.
