IKEA GATESHEAD REWARD

For every LED light-bulb sold, IKEA Foundation will even donate a further  €1 to light refugee camps.

For over ten years IKEA has recognised the need to collect used light bulbs and batteries and provided a manual collection service for customers to return ESbs and batteries

IKEA wanted to increase bulb and battery recycling rates and initiated the development of the technology with reVend.
reVend has now installed Light Bulb Recycling machines in

  • IKEA Lakeside
  • IKEA Wembley
  • IKEA Wednesbury
  • IKEA Coventry
  • IKEA Milton Keynes
  • IKEA Gateshead
  • IKEA Glasgow
  • IKEA Edinburgh

The Light Bulb Reverse Vending Recycling Machines are sited in prominent positions for the Public to see the initiative in action as they need to be encouraged to improve recycling.
