Tamlite Environmental - Lighting for the Planet


As with all of us, Tamlite Lighting has a vested interest in promoting good sustainability practice within the company and the wider lighting industry. Tamlite is one of the largest privately-owned UK manufacturers, so we have a responsibility to ensure our processes, technologies and products are in line with our commitment to ensuring a healthy planet for all.

Recycling Capabilities

Tamlite Environmental offers a complete recycling service when carrying out lighting projects and upgrades. We are committed to reducing landfill waste through specialist recycling means, ensuring that previous luminaires and lamps are effectively recycled and brought back into the Circular Economy, or are responsibly disposed of if required.

With over 2 million tonnes of electrical waste discarded every year, the need for efficient recycling is clear. Tamlite Environmental, in partnership with EWRG, has safely recycled over 75 million lamps since 2000, and continues to provide an outstanding WEEE recovery service today.

Blue is the new Green

We have only one planet, and it is critical that all of us take charge and do what we can to reduce our waste.

Recycling only goes so far. It is paramount that manufacturers and producers are more responsible, and design away non-essential plastic and other non-recyclable materials from their products and packaging, in order to reduce pollution in our rivers and oceans, as well as our reliance on landfill.

The Circular Economy

Tamlite has an experienced product design team, focused on creating luminaires that align with the principles of the Circular Economy.

The Ellen Macarthur Foundation, a leading figure within the Circular Economy, suggests that designing products with materials geared around longevity can reduce carbon emissions by over 40%.

Tamlite manufactures fittings that are built using quality materials, designed to ensure the internal components can be easily changed and maintained in situ.

Our collective responsibility

It is critical that manufacturers, designers and specifiers all take it upon themselves to carry out the most sustainable processes possible when delivering lighting solutions.

Our collective sustainability responsibility

Are you aware of your responsibilities when replacing lighting systems and undertaking lighting projects? Everyone in the supply chain is tasked with ensuring that the solutions provided to customers are sustainable, and that the replaced system is correctly stored, disposed and recycled.

Requirements include:

  • Compliant storage
  • Responsible disposal and processing
  • Up to date paperwork
  • Approved treatment partner

Tamlite is calling upon contractors to review their current processes regarding WEEE waste, to make sure that we are all behaving responsibly, and to ensure compliance across the board. Download our free checklist, to make sure your next project is fully compliant.
