Daffodils

The Great Bulb Exchange is a national CFL recycling campaign which launched on Monday 10th of October and will run for 3 weeks in hardware stores around the country.

Be a bright spark and recycle your waste CFL bulbs at your local hardware store in exchange for a FREE daffodil bulb (while stocks last).

Following on from the success of the pilot campaign last year, WEEE are delighted to have the following hardware stores involved in this great initiative: Topline, Expert Hardware, Woodies, Dairygold Co-op, Glanbia, United Hardware, Stakelums and McKenna Distributors.
