The light bulb recycler crushes used fluorescent lamps of any length into 100% recyclable material while capturing over 99.99% of the vapors released. The system, which is mounted to a 55-gallon drum, can hold up to 1,350 4-foot fluorescent lamps.
The unit is equipped with a side-mounted dust filter unit containing the highest quality H.E.P.A. filter available. This works in conjunction with an activated carbon filter located in the steel canister. The activated carbon filter actively captures and neutralizes the mercury vapor released from the lamps during crushing. In addition to providing EPA and OSHA compliance, this unit frees up valuable storage space normally filled with boxes of used lamps, reduces handling and related labor costs.
These states are prohibited from bulb crushing: CA, MN, MO, ME, VT, NH, CT, RI, PA and WV. Additionally, the nations of Canada, Russia, Ukraine, Australia, India, Pakistan, South Africa and Brazil are prohibited too.
