Fluorescent and HID Lamps

Improper disposal of used fluorescent and high intensity discharge lamps damages the environment. When broken, these lamps release mercury and other metals that damage the environment. Used fluorescent and HID lamps may be classified as hazardous waste due to their mercury content and are thus regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). They should be managed properly to ensure safe usage. There are recyclers that will take your used lamps.
