    Disposing of projector lamps

    Probably been discussed before but how do you dispose of them. I take ours to the local tip where they have a facility for fluorescent and halogen lamps.

    It's all you can do. I can't see why someone would pick up a faulty bulb

    As it happens, we use prm greentech to take our hardware and they have said they can take the lamps as well.

    Get them recycled. You're not supposed to take commercial or trade waste to a tip.

    You can if you let them know it's commercial. The guy who runs ours is a parent.

    We give ours to the site team/caretakers and they dispose of them with the fluorescent tubes that get recyled.

    +1 to this. If your school has a Facilities Management company in charge of site (likely for any new builds) they likely have a hazardous waste box somewhere, or a 'lamp coffin' - we chuck ours in there and it is disposed of properly!

    We include them in our WEEE collection each summer - do check with the company you use, however, as they don't all take them.

    Don't take them to the tip, as that is funded by council tax, so you're not allowed to take commercial waste there.
