Typically, fluorescent tubes contain 94% glass, 4% ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and 2% phosphor powder. The mercury in the tube is contained within this phosphor powder. We are one of the few companies in the UK that distil and recover the mercury from this phosphor powder. It’s the most environmentally friendly option.
We cover the UK, although some areas are very remote, and a surcharge will be applied.
We send you electronic waste transfer notes or duty of care explaining where the waste has been collected and where it will go with our full details. This is emailed to you once the collection is completed.
