Lamp RecyclingRecycling intact lamps is the most cost-effective way to manage mercury-containing lamps as a hazardous waste. It also reduces the risk of mercury vapor release, which can contaminate lakes and streams.

Types of Lamps:

Fluorescent lamps:
First used as overhead lighting in offices, these tube-style lamps now also come in compact globe shapes for a variety of home and office uses.

Mercury vapor lamps:
The first high intensity discharge (HID) lamps with blue-white light, originally used as farmyard lights.

Metal halide lamps:
Newer, more efficient HID lights found in homes and businesses.

High-pressure sodium vapor lamps:
These yellow-white HID lights are used for street lamps and outdoor security lighting.

Low-pressure sodium vapor lamps:
These orange HID lamps are used primarily in commercial settings.

Incandescent lights:
Standard electric light bulbs used in homes and businesses.


Lamp Recyclers Inc. issues a Certificate of Recycling for all lamps that we process. This document should be kept on file as proof that you are properly handling your waste lamps.
