With more companies switching to use Compact Fluorescent Lights, commonly known as energy saving light bulbs, it is increasingly important to recycle all types of fluorescent lighting safely.
Tens of millions of light-bulbs end up in landfill every year making the recycling of fluorescent lights essential to protect the environment.
Energy saving light bulbs do not last forever and must be disposed of correctly!
Why is it important to recycle fluorescent lights?
Recycling of any type of lighting has always been difficult as light-bulbs are made from several different materials.
Energy saving light-bulbs and fluorescent tubes are classified as hazardous waste because they contain mercury that is harmful to the environment if allowed to leach into the ground. Safe recycling is essential.
