Disposal and recycling of waste in Ukraine

Recycling UV lamps

Ultraviolet lamps differ in a number of useful properties, and therefore they are actively used in polyclinics, hospitals, sanatoriums, for checking the authenticity of bills, drying varnishes and paints, detecting traces on various surfaces, and others. But the utilization of ultraviolet lamps must be carried out under strictly defined conditions by companies that have permission to do so. In this regard, spontaneous emission of ultraviolet lamps is unacceptable and punishable by law.

What is the danger of ultraviolet lamps

All lighting products that are based on mercury vapor (energy saving, fluorescent lamps, sodium and so on), are subject to utilization and recycling according to legislative regulations. Companies that simply emit used lamps put at risk not only the lives of thousands of people living in a given area, but also the entire ecosystem. The same applies to domestic use and disposal of UV lamps. Even in small quantities, such lighting devices, in violation of their tightness, are dangerous, especially if the lamp breaks in a closed unventilated room.

Disposal of UV lamps is necessary for many reasons:

  • if the lamp breaks at home, mercury vapors penetrate into any gaps, upholstery, carpets, poisoning all residents of the house or apartment;
  • this waste is extremely toxic;
  • home remedies for the elimination of mercury are ineffective;
  • getting into the ecosystem, mercury wastes have a detrimental effect on all living organisms.

Harm of mercury vapor to the human body is undeniable, toxins can lead to:

  • lack of coordination;
  • insomnia;
  • nervous exhaustion;
  • heart disease;
  • chronic poisoning;
  • disruption of the excretory system;
  • to human death as a result of damage to organs and systems.

In this regard, UV lamps are prohibited:

  • keep;
  • to transport;
  • neutralize;
  • dispose of;
  • convert;
  • use after working out in any way.

All work must be carried out only by companies with the appropriate permission (licenses).

How to dispose of ultraviolet lamps

UV lamps are recyclable, from them you can get not only pure mercury, but also other useful components. For this, various processing methods can be used:

  • amalgamation;
  • heat treatment;
  • chemical-metallurgical method;
  • firing at high temperatures.

In any case, the first thing the waste is sorted and disposed of. Only after this useful components can be used again.

Is it possible to throw away UV lamps without recycling?

UV lamps belong to the first class of danger, since they contain harmful mercury vapors, which can cause significant harm to the environment and human health. In this regard, the refusal to dispose of ultraviolet lamps will have serious consequences - from an administrative fine to imprisonment of responsible persons (depending on the degree of harm done).
