Recycle.gi offers cost-effective and safe lightbulb disposal for businesses and organisations all around Gibraltar. All fluorescent lamps and tubes are considered hazardous waste when they are discarded because they contain mercury. Don’t worry though because Recycle.gi has an environmentally friendly solution for you and your business!
Why should we dispose of our waste light bulbs carefully?
Fluorescent light bulbs are not recycled. We safely dispose of flourescent lightbulbs in a controlled location. Did you know that the Mercury from one fluorescent bulb can pollute 6,000 gallons of water beyond safe levels for drinking! Mercury is an essential component of many energy-efficient light bulbs. The two most common types of energy-efficient lighting that contain mercury are:
- fluorescent bulbs, including compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and
- high intensity discharge (HID) bulbs.
Businesses wishing to safely dispose of their light bulbs can contact us at Recycle.gi for more details. We can provide you with safe disposal bins where you can deposit waste lightbulbs and we will take care of everything else!
We provide our clients with Certificates of Safe Disposal as confirmation that the waste lightbulbs have been disposed of safely and in accordance with EU Environmental Regulations by an authorised EU-Regulated Plant.
