Fluorescent Lamps 101

Recycling BulbsSmart business owners today agree that fluorescent lamps are the most convenient and cost-effective way to light their workplaces. Because they consume 25-35% less energy and last around ten times as long as old incandescent bulbs, fluorescents are simply the logical choice for lighting anything from corporate offices to warehouses. In addition, they are an excellent way for companies to downsize their carbon footprint and communicate a “green” image to their customers.

So what’s the catch? In every fluorescent lamp there is a small amount of mercury that, if a bulb is disposed of improperly, can leak out and hurt the environment and pose a danger to humans. This is why lamp recycling is essential for any business interested in maintaining a safe and clean environment, as well as staying in line with all federal and state regulations.

Here's a primer on the light bulb phase-out and what will mean to you.

In fact, it actually will save households money because of lower utility bills. Ninety percent of the energy that an incandescent light bulb burns is wasted as heat.
