Fluorescent Light Bulb Recycling in Northwest Florida

Go Green - do the right thing

Although fluorescent lighting saves energy and money, it presents a special disposal consideration. Recycling solves this problem by separating the crushed components into reusable mercury, glass, aluminum, lead, copper and ash. None of the byproducts go to landfills - all materials are sold to industries and reused.

Florida has some of the toughest disposal prohibitions in the country on mercury-containing lamps. As of July 1, 1994, commercially-used fluorescent lamps may only be disposed of through a landfill designated for hazardous waste or through a special recycling process. There are no hazardous waste disposal sites in the state of Florida.

"Mercury is a persistent and chronic health threat to solid waste workers. It also presents an expensive problem to remove the mercury from the landfill leachate. Therefore, the best management practice for mercury-containing devices is recycling."

"These types of spent lamps have been banned from solid waste incineration since July 1, 1994, in any quantity."
