BULB DISPOSAL

Crushing of fluorescent bulbs releases toxic mercury vapour and phosphor dust and when incineration is used as an alternative method to disposal it emits mercury vapours that can travel over 200 miles. Mercury is number 3 on the 2007 list of hazardous substance as outlined by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Oil Mop Environmental offers a solution to this hazard by using an environmentally friendly bulb crusher. This machine eliminates the emission of toxic vapours into the atmosphere and at the same time provides an effective way of disposing spent bulbs.

Our unit has an air tight system designed to pull all vapours through its filters, once the bulb has been crushed. The unit’s filters are specifically designed to capture mercury vapours.
These filters are replaced frequently and are encapsulated in concrete upon disposal to prevent further leaching of toxins into the environment. The residual glass is also collected and is encapsulated in concrete and is disposed of at an approved disposal facility.
