Light Globes Recycling Hotline

The best way to dispose of the light globes depends upon their type.

Fluorescent tubes, compact fluoros (CFLs), HIDs and metal halides all contain mercury and need to be recycled through council, commercial or community programs that safely separate the different elements. Search for options in your area below.  There is a specific globe recycling program in South Australia and toxic waste programs in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania that collect CFLs. 

Incandescent globes and halogens can be recycled through some of these programs or can simply be wrapped in paper and disposed of in the garbage bin. They are made from low value and non-toxic materials which makes recycling them very difficult.  

Workplaces

If your workplace or business has large quantities of light globes to recycle, visit BusinessRecycling.com.au to find suitable service options.

About Light Globes

  • Energy-efficient alternatives to incandescent globes, like CFLs and LEDs, use much less energy and last much longer than old style incandescent.      
  • Any type of broken globe should be wrapped and placed in your landfill bin. They should never go in your household recycling bin.
  • To clean up a broken fluorescent tube or compact fluoros follow the instructions from ZeroWaste South Australia

Importance of Recycling Light Globes

  • Compact fluoros contain trace amounts of mercury and one third of the amount used in office fluoro tubes. By recycling, the small amount of mercury can be recovered, used again and kept out of landfill.
  • Recycling fluorescent household globes can also recover other valuable materials like ceramic, glass, aluminium and phosphor that are used in products like fertilizer, aluminium cans and insulation batts.

Further Information

  • FluoroCycle is a voluntary partnership between government and industry to increase the recycling of mercury-containing lamps.
  • Fluorescent globe processing is carried out in Australia.
