The best practice for storage and prior to collection your lamps, we suggest should be either contained in cardboard boxes, or similar or taped up in bundles. We recommend the use of masking tape or electricians tape. Do not use parcel tape or gaffer/duct tape as this is very difficult for us to remove and bubble-wrap is not necessary. Compact/SON/bulb lamps can simply be boxed.
Research shows that there are over 100 million fluorescent and highway lamps used in the United Kingdom each year which produce in excess of 3,100 tonnes of waste material which, until recently, has ended up in landfill sites.
Even though each lamp only contains a small amount or Mercury the sheer volume of waste means that large quantities of hazardous Mercury could find their way into our land and water supplies.
The Mercury from only one fluorescent lamp can contaminate up to 30,000 litres of water beyond a safe standard for drinking.
It is no longer legal to use landfill sites for fluorescent lamp disposal and the modern and environmentally sound treatment is fluorescent tube recycling by extracting the glass and metal components and distilling the elemental Mercury from the powder in the lamps for reuse.
Concept offer this recycling service and have a simple pricing structure based on a price for the storage unit and price for collection and recycling of the contents, for more details, please call us on 01204 363184
