Why is it important to recycle light tubes?
Light tubes usually contain hazardous components and heavy metals that need to be recovered and not landfilled. Light tubes are also a safety risk once broken, and can also release toxins such as mercury, phosphorous, sodium and other heavy metals. All types of tubes are recyclable including compact fluorescent tubes, incandescent tubes, halogen tubes, and LED tubes, to recover raw material while controlling the health and safety hazards.
How light tubes are recycled?
The mercury and fluorescent powders contained in the fluorescent tubes are carefully removed and disposed of. Finally, the materials that compose them (glass, metals, plastic, etc.) are sorted to be largely reused in the manufacture of new products.
