As a Recolight Member, we are committed to ensuring lamp and luminaire recycling is as easy, efficient and cost-effective as possible. All our lamps can be recycled simply and at no cost through Recolight – the only specialist WEEE compliance scheme to have a dedicated network of collection points.
Doing our part to minimise the impact iQuatics makes on the environment is key to everything we do, we’ve already taken steps to remove all unnecessary packaging from our entire product range and the packing materials we do use are all either made from recycled products or are fully recyclable. Being a Recolight member and fulfilling our obligations towards to cost of recycling iQuatics products at their end of life is another step in us minimising our impact at a time when we are all far more aware of the challenges the world around us faces.
