Bulb Lamp Recycling

Bulb Recycling Services

Lighting Resources is the nation’s largest bulb recycler delivering bulb recycling solutions that are second to none for than 25 years.

Our facilities have been designed to accept intact and pre-crushed bulbs of all sizes and types. We manage almost all aspects of the bulb recycling process in house by operating the very best bulb processing equipment, using mercury retort ovens to remove mercury from phosphorus powder, and even triple distillation equipment to recycle mercury back to virgin specification.

Because our personnel, facilities, and trucks are also permitted to manage mercury as a hazardous waste, we also accept crushed glass and phosphorus powder that may be regulated as a hazardous waste.

  • Fluorescent Tubes

Packing, Shipping, and Storing Your Bulbs

Whenever possible, best practice to prepare bulbs for shipping is to package spent bulbs in the boxes that your replacement bulbs were packed. Lighting Resources can deliver packaging material to customers in advance of shipment. We offer a complete selection of fiberboard drums, cardboard boxes, steel/poly drums, buckets, and labels. All pallet load quantities should be packaged, stacked and wrapped.
