Over 100 million light tubes and bulbs are used in the UK every year. With the introduction of the Hazardous Waste Regulations in 2005, recycling has become the most cost effective option as well as being environmentally welcoming.
Advancing technology now offers new opportunities to recycle all of the parts and is the most effective method to minimise waste and ensure the efficient use of natural resources.
Until recent times, a huge amount of fluorescent light tubes and bulbs were scrapped every year and were simply crushed; leading to thousands of tonnes of mercury and lead contaminated glass going to landfill.
