Take Back the Light is Canada’s leading light recycling program for businesses and institutions, and provides a simple low-cost opportunity to have fluorescent lamps and light fixtures to be recycled responsibly.

The program encourages commercial buyers of lighting to make responsible choices. Whether lighting a stadium, subway tunnel, or office, buyers can use their purchasing influence to choose sellers and retailers that extend their services to include proper recycling. The program also has a first-of-its-kind recycling standard that ensures full recovery of mercury and accountability of all material to final disposition.

Three Reasons to Join Take Back the Light:

1. It’s good for the environment

2. It’s affordable

3. It’s simple
