Flourescent Lighting
Light Bulbs
We can collect and recycle fluorescent tubes and fluorescent bulbs, we have a unique ability to bring our equipment to you, which enables us to crush your tubes at your premises, reducing the overall volume considerably and transport them from site in secure bags Recycling lighting such as fluorescent tubes and bulbs is a key part of our business and we offer a complete collection recycling and disposal business which incorporates fridge freeze recycling, battery recycling, and TV recycling. This procedure is fully compliant and endorsed by the EA under, for which we hold current EA registrations, that cover us for England and Wales, along with our current waste carriers licence.
This preferred method is more accurate for reporting and auditing purposes as our equipment has built-in scales that enable us to accurately inform you of the total weight recycled upon completion.

European Waste Catalogue Coding (EWC)

Under European Waste Catalogue Coding (EWC) fluorescent tubes are deemed hazardous waste and therefore must be treated accordingly.
There are estimated to be around 100 million fluorescent tubes and lights in use in the UK and around 70 million changed each year that enter the waste stream. Fluorescent light is produced by passing an electric current through mercury vapour to generate ultraviolet energy. A phosphor coating inside the tube transforms this to visible light. A single four foot fluorescent tube contains around 23 milligrams of mercury, a toxic metal that can cause serious water pollution, and is readily taken up by fish, plants and crops causing bioaccumulation in foods in the human diet.
