Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Clean Harbors’ light bulb recycling process located at our Chicago, Illinois RCRA treatment, storage and disposal facility processes straight tubes, U-tubes and circular lamps. This process separates the metal, glass, and mercury containing phosphors, and then segregates each component into separate containers. Glass and metal are sent to approved local recyclers, and the mercury phosphors are sent for further refinement at a Clean Harbors approved retort facility.
Through Clean Harbors’ process, no materials are landfilled thereby offering a responsible alternative to stabilization and landfill.
Our in-house processing capabilities provide final disposal of your bulbs. All components of the bulb are either recycled or reused further limiting your liability.
Our light bulb recycling unit is superior to other bulb crushing units, which typically only crush bulbs and commingle all components. Our unit recycles 100% of the components of your light bulbs, and it fully contains any possible fugitive emissions.
