Environmental Programs

Lighting Council Australia and its members are committed to responsible environmental practice. Our commitment is demonstrated through the Lighting Council of Australia Code of Conduct, which requires Members to participate in programs that encourage increased environmental responsibility.


Lighting Council Australia administers the Fluorocycle program, a product stewardship arrangement that seeks to increase the national recycling rate of waste mercury-containing lamps. Fluorocycle is entirely funded through contributions of our Members.


Lighting Council Australia also manages the Exitcycle program. Exitcycle is a product stewardship arrangement modelled on Fluorocycle that aims to promote the recycling of emergency and exit lighting in Queensland through a voluntary scheme. The Exitcycle program is supported by the Queensland Government.
