Disposal and recycling of waste in Ukraine

Recycling fluorescent lamps

Fluorescent lamps provide bright daylight, help save energy, are inexpensive, have a long service life, and therefore are widely used in industry. In everyday life, they are also used, but less often. Such lighting devices contain mercury vapor hazardous to the human body, and therefore, after mining, they must be disposed of according to the established regulations. Disposal of fluorescent lamps is a complex and rather time-consuming process, which can be entrusted to the company UtilVtorProm.

Why do you need to dispose of fluorescents

Mercury-containing lamps are completely safe as long as the tightness of the lighting equipment is maintained. When a fluorescent lamp is simply thrown away after working, the glass is damaged. Because of this, mercury vapor enters the air. This substance is extremely dangerous for all living organisms, even in small doses, as it can provoke such consequences:

  • chronic poisoning;
  • insomnia;
  • chronic fatigue;
  • damage to the central nervous and excretory systems;
  • emotional instability;
  • cognitive impairment.

In this case, it is the mercury lamps that are the main source of mercury release into the environment, especially with their mass release. As a result of such rash actions, hazardous substances end up in city landfills and waste disposal sites, get into the water and air. Since mercury in the lamps is contained in the gaseous state, the toxin spreads very quickly. Getting into the reservoirs, groundwater, soil, various buildings, hazardous compounds persist there for decades, poisoning everything around. Soon, this terrain becomes uninhabitable.

Stages of disposal of fluorescent lamps

Disposal and recycling of mercury-containing lamps must be carried out in accordance with the regulations established by the legislation. It occurs in several stages:

  • sorting lamp components;
  • neutralization (neutralization) of hazardous compounds;
  • destruction of harmful toxins;
  • recycling of safe components at the respective plants.

The transportation of waste lamps to the disposal site is also considered an important step. In this case, you need to follow some rules:

  • Waste to the place of storage should be transported in sealed containers;
  • the vehicle must be equipped with all means of protection so that, even in the event of an accident, mercury vapors do not fall into the air;
  • personnel must have appropriate protective suits;
  • All containers must be labeled.

All these requirements are the disposal of fluorescent, sodium, bactericidal and other lamps are observed by UtilVtorProm. To use our services, leave a request on the site.

The consequences of the release of mercury-containing lamps without proper disposal is punishable by law. At the same time, it is not at all important, the used lighting devices were thrown out in the open, buried or destroyed, since the consequences would still be serious. The culprit faces administrative punishment (from an impressive fine to imprisonment).
