It's not the prettiest invention ever devised, but a new device at Lismore City Council's Recycling and Recovery Centre is doing big things to help the environment.

Resembling a 40-gallon drum with a snorkel, the council's new fluorescent lighting processor, the Bulb Eater, keeps mercury from fluoro lights, including new low-energy lights, out of landfill.

A new partnership project between the council and Country Energy means thousands of worn-out street light bulbs from across the Northern Rivers will join the fluorescent bulbs from homes and businesses already being fed to the machine.
