|To meet our legal obligation to WEEE regulations, we are a member of Lumicom, a compliance scheme that handles the safe disposal of waste luminaires.
If you are a contractor or client fitting LSUK luminaires and have identified LSUK as responsible for the disposal of the discarded luminaires under WEEE regulations, please contact Lumicom on 0845 643 0304 who will arrange a collection our behalf.
To determine responsibilty of disposal of waste luminaires - please refer to the guidance below:
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DISPOSAL OF WASTE LUMINIAIRES?
A producer and therefore their scheme is responsible for discarded lighting equipment as follows:
• If the luminaires were installed before 13 August 2005 then the producer who is supplying the replacement products is responsible for the disposal of the old luminaires.
• If the waste luminaires are not being replaced then the end-user is responsible.
• If the discarded luminaire was sold on or after 13 August 2005 then the producer who originally supplied it is responsible for disposal.
• If the producer cannot be traced the end-user is responsible for disposal.
Producers are obliged to mark their equipment so that users can easily identify which producer (if any) is responsible when it comes to disposal.
