R & B Star are a certified re-cycling centre for Lamps and Tubes and will supply you with an official certificate to prove that you have disposed of your lamps and tubes in the correct manner.
Low energy light bulbs use up to 80% less energy than old fashioned bulbs, but to do this, they need a small amount of mercury which is why they can’t be thrown away in your bin.
The typical amount of mercury in a Gas Discharge Lamp is between 1.2 to 4mg, and in a domestic CFL this equates to the tip of a ballpoint pen. The mercury in one CFL is not enough to pose a health risk but they do need to be disposed of responsibly to reduce the risk of large quantities of mercury ending up in landfill. In Europe the collection and recycling of GDLs is compulsory under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive
If we all recycle we can protect our environment, and the mercury, glass and metal can be reused.
Until recently, if you wanted to recycle your old low-energy light bulbs the only option was to take them to your local council waste recycling centre. There are about 1,100 of these around the country where you can take your old light bulbs along with other items of WEEE.
