A recycling bin for low-energy lightbulbs has been installed in Waterloo.
The council received a Government grant to fund the costs of the containers and they will be emptied free of charge by Recolight.
Low energy light bulbs contain small amounts of mercury which can be damaging to the environment if not processed correctly.
In Southwark the only collection points for used lightbulbs are at the reuse and recycling centre off Old Kent Road and at Sainsbury's on Dog Kennel Hill, so the new Waterloo bin will be more convenient for many SE1 residents on both sides of the borough boundary.
