Lamp Recycling Services


Lighting Resources provides lamp recycling solutions that are second to none. Our facilities have been designed to accept intact and pre-crushed lamps of all sizes and types. Our treatment process limits your superfund liability. We manage almost all aspects of the lamp recycling process in house by operating the very best lamp processing equipment, using mercury retort ovens to remove mercury from phosphorus powder, and even triple distillation equipment to recycle mercury back to virgin specification.

Because our personnel, facilities, and trucks are also permitted to manage mercury as a hazardous waste, we also accept crushed glass and phosphorus powder that may regulated as a hazardous waste.

Packing, Shipping, and Storing Your Lamps

The central idea is to package your lamps to minimize breakage during storage and shipment. It is recommended that you package your spent lamps in the boxes in which your replacement lamps were packed if they are to be picked up in pallet load or large quantities. We understand that this is not always possible and this is why we can provide an assortment of materials such as fiberboard drums, cardboard boxes, steel/poly drums, buckets, and labels.

Arrange for Large Volume Lamp Recycling

Our nationwide coverage accommodates weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly, bulk pickup schedules to handle your large-quantity recycling needs.
