From 1st July 2007 the WEEE regulations state it is now no longer legal to use landfill sites or skips for disposal of fluorescent lamps,fluorescent tubes,high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, linear fluorescent light bulbs and CFLs compact fluorescent light bulbs and by law, you must be able to prove to your Local Authority that you have complied with the new WEEE regulations. You are required to obtain a "Waste Transfer Note" to show that you have disposed of your waste in a responsible manner.


A fluorescent lamp or fluorescent tube is a gas discharge lamp which uses electricity to excite mercury vapour.

Fluorescent tubes are made up of 94 percent glass, 4 percent of ferrous and non ferrous metals and 2 percent phosphor powder which contains the most hazardous element mercury.

30,000 litres of water can be polluted from just one Fluorescent tube being disposed of incorrectly and mercury being allowed to enter into the water system.

The Legal, (and environmentally sound) treatment is to recycle the fluorescent lamps/tubes(also known as flo tube recycling), extracting the glass and metal components and distilling the elemental mercury from the powder in the lamps/tubes for reuse.
The Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005, which came into force in July 2005, incorporated the European Waste Catalogue definitions to assess waste, under these definitions fluorescent tubes, high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, linear fluorescent light bulbs and CFLs compact fluorescent light bulbs are classed as Hazardous Waste and MUST be handled in accordance with the regulation.

The new Waste Electrical and Electronic WEEE regulations came into force on 1st July 2007, making it illegal to dispose of any lamps, tubes or bulbs without a transfer note proving that they are to be recycled, regardless of quantities. The maximum fines are £30,000 per lamp.

A new law has been passed in 2012 stating that from 2016 EU Member States will have to collect 45 tonnes of e-waste for every 100 tonnes of electronic goods put on sale during the previous 3 years

By 2019 the target must rise to 65 tonnes, or member states can opt to collect 85% of total e-waste generated.

EU officials say only about one-third of e-waste is treated appropriately.

Our experienced and trained staff ensure that all waste lamps(fluorescent tubes, high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, Linear fluorescent light bulbs and CFLs Compact fluorescent light bulbs) are properly documented and disposed of using the most cost effective and environmentally friendly route in compliance with all the current WEEE regulations. Whatever your requirements, whether you have a regular waste fluorescent lamp problem or a 'one off' requirement for disposal, Ecolamp can help and will provide the same level of professionalism no matter how large or small the job. We issue full documentation and Waste Recycling Certificates.
