Why is it important to recycle bulbs?
Light bulbs usually contain hazardous components and heavy metals that need to be recovered and not landfilled. Light bulbs are also a safety risk once broken, and can also release toxins such as mercury, phosphorous, sodium and other heavy metals. All types of bulbs are recyclable including compact fluorescent bulbs, incandescent bulbs, halogen bulbs, and LED bulbs, to recover raw material while controlling the health and safety hazards.
Consisting mainly of glass, plastic, and metal, the bulbs and tubes can be recycled with a recovery rate of 90% of their weight. If 100 people bring back their bulb for recycling, this prevents the emission of 1 kg of CO2.
Compact fluorescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes are made with 0,005% of mercury. Although , the presence of mercury becomes harmful to the environment and health on the scale of the tens of millions of “neon” bulbs and tubes reaching the end of their life each year. Their recycling makes it possible to recover and neutralize mercury.
How light bulbs are recycled?
Lamps are crushed and processed under an insulated environment controlling and separating hazardous components such as mercury and phosphorous powders, and secondary raw material such as glass, metals, and plastics are extracted and used in manufacturing industries.
