Mercury Recovery & Recycling

Fluorescent Lamp & Mercury Lighting Waste Recycling

If you’ve got lighting waste, let Australia’s largest lighting and mercury recycler tailor the perfect solution for you.

While fluorescent (fluoro) tubes and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) were an energy-efficient way of lighting our world, they contain mercury which is a toxic metal that needs to be properly recycled and kept out of our environment.  LED lighting is taking over from these older mercury lighting products and slowly they can be expected to be phased out over the next 4-5 years.

Although the amount of mercury in each tube or lamp may seem small, the millions of lamps discarded each year make up the largest source of mercury going into Australian land fil

The only nationally EPA approved & licenced mercury recycler and the biggest in Australasia

Keeping mercury-containing lighting waste out of land fill is easy. As a lamp recycler, Ecocycle provides a comprehensive service for the collection and recycling of lamps, fluorescent tubes and light globes.

Even better, we don’t just recover mercury. Fluorescent tubes and lamps also contain glass, aluminium and other metals which are recycled into new products, reducing Australia’s overall carbon footprint.
