Fluorescent light globes are banned from landfill, this means they can’t go into your red lid rubbish bin.
Light globes can be dropped off at the checkout counter of the Renmark Mitre 10 store. The light globes will then be recycled instead of going to landfill and it will prevent mercury contained in some globes from harming the environment. They will take:

- Fluorescent tubes
- Incandescent globes
- Halogen lamps, tubes and bulbs.
