Lamp Recycling

Lamps such as linear fluorescent tubes, compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL), and many other commercial, consumer and industrial-grade lamps use mercury as an essential component.

Though not harmful when undisturbed, light bulbs are fragile, and their breaking release potentially hazardous vapors into the environment.

While you may take precautions to avoid the impact in the rare occasion someone breaks a light bulb, the effects can be potential devastating if they make it into the landfills.

For more than 40 years, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act have regulated sources of mercury and their subsequent final destination.

The State of California, as one of the leaders in waste diversion, has maintained a very strict stance on the Storing & Handling of mercury containing lamps.

Thankfully, the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) provides detailed instructions as its suggested handling procedures on it’s website calrecycle.com.

However, it assumes you understand your responsibility and your role when it comes to handling mercury containing devices.

Businesses, institutions, municipalities and even homeowners that fail to do so can be subject to penalties. In California, penalties can reach $25,000 for each incident.

Fortunately, we have everything you and your organization needs to maintain a safe, efficient and compliant workplace, free from light bulb related drama.

From boxes and fiber drums, to prepaid recycling kits that provide a convenient solution to an unnecessary problem.

As Southern California’s fastest growing universal waste recycling company, lamp and light bulb recycling is where we first got started.

We provide solutions for all types, shapes and sizes. From the standard fluorescent tubes, to HID (high-intensity display) lamps used in streetlights and parking garages, Universal Waste is the preferred choice of hundreds of businesses for all their lamp recycling needs.

Storing Lamps

According to the EPA mandate, lamps can be stored for up to one year. However, regulations and enforcement vary from state to state. To make sure you are compliant in your state, the EPA has created a guide with state adoption and authorization information. California is one of the states that has adopted and enforces the 1995 universal waste final rule.

Lamp should be stored in a sealed contained where the integrity of the lamp can be maintained, i.e unbroken. Universal Waste Disposal Co can provide corrugated boxes for linear lamps, CFLs and other screw in lamps. If you have large quantities needing to be recycled, we can provide you with fiber drums capable of storing up to 400 4-ft T-8 tubes.
