Professional Collection and Disposal of Fluorescent Tube Lighting

Fluorescent Tube Disposal UK is governed by the Hazardous Waste Disposal Regulations.

It means your light tube disposal must be carried out by a licensed company. Commercial fluorescent light tubes can no longer be thrown out with the general waste.

In fact, just one fluorescent lamp can contain enough Mercury to contaminate 30,000 litres of water.

Our tube recycling services provide specialist storage boxes for your light bulbs. These we simply switch over for empty containers once full.

From regular lamp disposal collections to one-offs, we can safely dispose of all quantities.

We have no call centres but do have a knowledgeable team of experts with over 50 years experience at your disposal.
