Fluorescent Light Bulbs Waste Disposal

Broken light bulbs often end up in landfill at the end of their life, but it is becoming increasingly easier to safely recycle them. When a light bulb stops working or is broken, it should be properly disposed of. Fluorescent light bulbs are also known as energy saving light bulbs and should be recycled instead of being sent to landfill but cannot be mixed in with regular home recycling like paper and plastic.

Standard light bulbs and halogen light bulbs can be thrown away with ordinary household waste, but fluorescent light bulbs count as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment or WEEE and must be disposed of correctly. Fluorescent light bulbs are made up of many complex materials such as metals, delicate glass, and electrical components. Fluorescent or energy saving light bulbs contain small amounts of mercury, which can be released into the environment as a contaminant if they are disposed of improperly, and so it is important that they are handled correctly.

Correct disposal also ensures that the valuable parts of the light bulb such as metal and glass can be salvaged and reused. If you’re not sure how to dispose of a fluorescent light bulb and want to prevent your old light bulbs from unnecessarily going to landfill,  The Mick George Group’s waste management services can safely recycle WEEE waste such as fluorescent light bulbs and more. We guarantee that your old and broken fluorescent light bulbs will be safely disposed of according to regulations to minimise environmental impact.
