How it Works: The Lamp Recycling Process

Friday, December 2, 2011
Ever wonder what happens to all those spent lamps that are shipped from facilities via EasyPak™ containers? I did, and learned that in recycling they undergo quite a process of transformation into raw materials for reuse.

First, upon arrival at the recycling center, lamps are automatically fed into pressurized processing machines (which prevent mercury from escaping into the air), while the spent EasyPak containers are recycled or reused. Next, byproducts like phosphor powder are separated from the glass and metal components, which are stored for reuse. Finally, the mercury is safely isolated and extracted from the other materials. The components are now ready to be turned back into a fluorescent lamp or other product!


EasyPak™ mail-in containers make it simple and cost-effective to recycle lamps and other wastes like ballasts, batteries, and electronics with features like prepaid shipping and optional automatic container reordering. Learn more » EasyPak™ recycling containers
