Recycling services helps meet EU legislation
To provide information on the recycling of lamps and batteries, Mercury Recycling has developed a new web site. The processes used by the company recycle or re-use 99.75% by weight of the lamp — including the mercury. Mercury’s service also provides a means of complying with EU legislation that used lamps and batteries are taken to a suitably recycled recycling facility or authorised landfill site. Mercury provides a full end-to-end service, including paperwork to provide a full audit trail and meet the Hazardous Waste Regulations. Recovered mercury is supplied to two major lamp manufacturers in the UK where it is used in the production of new lamps, thereby closing the loop.
