Gas Discharge Lamps and LED Light Sources

Gas discharge lamps, including fluorescent tubes and neon lights, along with LED light sources, are widely used for their energy efficiency. However, when these products reach the end of their lifespan, they can't be tossed in with regular waste. They contain materials that can be harmful if not disposed of correctly, but also valuable materials that can be recovered through recycling. Southern Electrical Recycling LTD offers specialist recycling services for these types of light sources.

Why Recycle your Gas Discharge Lamps and LED Light Sources with us?

  • Hazardous Waste Management: These lamps often contain mercury, a harmful substance if not managed correctly. Recycling ensures these materials are handled and disposed of properly, protecting the environment and public health.
  • Conservation of Resources: These light sources contain valuable materials like metal and glass that can be recovered and reused in new products, reducing the demand for raw materials.
  • Energy Efficiency: Creating new products from recycled materials typically requires less energy than using new materials, reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Waste Reduction: By recycling these lamps and light sources, we can keep them out of landfills and incinerators, significantly reducing waste.
  • Job Creation: The recycling process generates jobs in the recycling industry and provides raw materials for industries that utilize recycled materials.

Our Recycling Process

Our professional team begins by assessing each item for any components that can be salvaged or recycled. The light sources are then carefully dismantled, and valuable materials such as metals, glass, and phosphor powders are separated.

We handle any hazardous materials, including mercury found in certain types of gas discharge lamps, safely and responsibly. These substances are contained and disposed of in compliance with all relevant environmental regulations, protecting both human health and the environment.



Once the recycling process is complete, we provide a comprehensive report detailing what was recycled. This ensures transparency and allows you to see the impact of your decision to recycle.

Ready for the Future

Once the materials have been recycled, they are ready to be used in the manufacture of new products. This circular economy approach reduces the need for raw material extraction, promoting a greener future.

Contributing to a Sustainable Future
