New service to dispose of lamps

A new nationwide service will allow buildings services managers to dispose of end-of-life fluorescent and sodium lamps easily and effectively.

Disposal problems with the lamps, now classified as hazardous waste will be eased by the new ‘Multi Box’ service from Recyclite, which will allow the immediate and safe storage of spent units, minimising the health and safety risks associated with broken glass and mercury vapour escape.

Recyclite managing director Julia Ingleson said: “The service will appeal to those involved in re-lamping contracts and planned maintenance services. Based on the type, size and quantity of lamps in each location, Recyclite will supply a mix of appropriately sized boxes to suit the contract.

“The boxes are easy to carry, so can be moved to a central storage area. This facilitates rapid site clearance, a major benefit to the contractor who may be working to a tight schedule, often with little storage space and penalties for late completion.”

The easy-to-carry boxes allow for safe manoeuvring around a site, with Recyclite collecting, issuing relevant documentation and processing the lamps.
