The Bulb Eater® Makes Positive Environmental and Cost Impact at Ontario Hospital

Belleville General Hospital in Belleville, Ontario is currently undergoing a 175,000 sq. ft. expansion. The new space means that the hospital will need even more fluorescent lamps to provide lighting, and ultimately will need to find a way to safely and efficiently dispose of an average of 500 mercury-containing bulbs per month.  Ken Paradise, manager of facility services at the hospital found the perfect solution: The Bulb Eater.

The Bulb Eater crushes fluorescent tubes into a 55 gallon drum while removing all harmful mercury vapors from the bulbs.  It cuts down substantially on the need for storage space, saves time over packing lamps into boxes, and helps cut recycling costs.  The response at Belleville General, according to Paradise, has been "unbelievable."
