Since July 2007, a system has been operating in the UK to take-back, reuse or treat and recycle used electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This system is intended to reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill and to ensure that what gets separately collected is dealt with properly.
Fluorescent lamps, high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, linear and CFLs compact tube light bulbs fall under the rules of the WEEE directive. We are able to provide bespoke coffins for the safe storage of such items on your site until they can be recycled, usually done by extracting the glass and metal components and distilling the elemental mercury from the powder in the lamps for reuse.
Select A Skip UK Ltd are fully licensed to organise the safe collection and disposal of any fluorescent tubes you may have.
