Light fixtures

Small quantities of light fixtures

Put old and broken light fixtures, ceiling lights, wall sconces and wall lights into your black cart as garbage.

Special instructions

Put broken glass pieces into a puncture-resistant, non-breakable, sealed container (e.g. plastic tub) or by wrapping it in two layers of paper and bagging them. Label as "sharps" with a permanent marker and place in your black cart as garbage.​​​

Larger sizes or quantities of light fixtures

Some private companies may accept reusable building materials - check the Alberta Recycling Hotline for options.
