Fluorescent Lamps / Fluorescent Tubes

Ecoshred offer a fully ISO accedditted service that enables you to dispose of your used fluorescent lamps and electrical lighting legally and compliantly.

Hazardous chemicals like mercury and phosphor used in the production of lighthing and lamps means that it is now illegal to dispose of these items using skips/bins or your local landfill site. Instead you now have to prove you have discarded and recycled them to the satisfactory levels set within the WEEE directive.

Ecoshred provide a simple and flexible service that will keep you safe and secure within the WEEE directive and Hazardous Waste regulation 2005.

We collect, dispose and recycle all of your items and then provide you with all the relevant Waste Transfer and Hazardous Waste certificates. We also provide storage solutions for all your lamps and electrical items until they are ready for collection.

100 x CFL lamps = 20kg = £14

Please note sleeved lamps incur an extra charge of £0.10 (10p) per lamp, due to the extra labour charge in de-sleeving the lamps prior to crushing Teflon coated lamps (as used in the food industry) are £1.80 per kilo. Check transport cost to your postcode


Prior to collection your lamps must be either contained in cardboard boxes (or similar) or taped up in bundles. Please use masking tape or electricians tape. Do not use parcel tape or gaffer/duct tape as this is very difficult for us to remove.

Bubble-wrap is not necessary

Compact/SON/bulb lamps can simply be boxed.
