Fluorescent Tube Pricing & Pickup

Fluorescent Lamps & Tubes

All fluorescent lamps and tubes are considered hazardous waste because they contain mercury and must be recycled, or taken to a household hazardous waste disposal facility, a universal waste handler or an authorized recycling facility.

When mercury-containing lamps or tubes are placed in the trash and collected for disposal, the lamps or tubes are broken and mercury is released to the environment. Mercury vapors from broken lamps or tubes can be absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream. People who are particularly close to the breakage are especially at risk. Mercury from broken lamps and tubes can also be washed by rain water into waterways.

Fluorescent lamps and tubes include:

  • Fluorescent tubes, including low mercury tubes.
  • Compact fluorescents, including low mercury lamps.

High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lamps:

  • Metal halide lamps, such as floodlights for large indoor and outdoor areas and gymnasiums.
  • Sodium lamps, such as those sometimes used as security lighting and outdoor floodlights.
  • Mercury vapor lamps, such as those sometimes used for street lighting.
