Fluorescent Lighting Recycling at a Glance

The safe collection and recycling of mercury-containing lamps is important in avoiding the serious impact of mercury entering the environment. If these products are disposed of to the landfill the mercury contained in one fluorescent tube can pollute ground water and have a serious impact on the environment.

Acceptance Criteria

  • Compact Fluorescent Lamps
  • Fluorescent U-Tubes
  • Linear Fluorescent Lamps
  • Mercury Vapor Lamps
  • Metal Halide Lamps
  • Sodium Vapor Lamps
  • UV Lamps
  • LED tubes

What happens to recycled lights?

Tubes and globes are crushed and the material is sorted into individual components for resource recovery:

  • Aluminum from the tube ends is separated and then reused in the manufacturing of new products
  • Glass is recycled into glass wool used for home insulation
  • Mercury is distilled from phosphor powder and mainly used in dental amalgam
  • Phosphor powder is used in fertilizer
