Got this message from my local freecycle today:

From Friday 31 October, anyone who takes a traditional light bulb to
any B&Q store in England, Scotland and Wales will receive two energy
saving bulbs to replace it, helping customers to reduce both their
carbon footprint and electricity bills.

In most homes lighting accounts for around 15% of the electricity
bill. By changing just one standard bulb to an energy saving bulb,
consumers can save £3 per year and 11kg CO2. By replacing all the
remaining standard (GLS) bulbs in your home with energy saving bulbs,
they could save around £45 a year from energy bills, and 170kg CO2.

The light bulb amnesty will run in B&Q stores from Friday 31 October
until Sunday 2 November. B&Q has 589,700 energy saving light bulbs to
exchange for traditional bulbs (offer limited to two free energy
saving light bulbs per household). The bulbs that are traded in will
be recycled by the store.
