Events & Notices

Fluorescent Light Tube Recycling Service

Council has introduced a free recycling service for used fluorescent tubes. Collection boxes are located at a number of sites within the Shire so that residents can safely deposit their used fluorescent tubes for recycling. Fluorescent tubes contain mercury, one of the most hazardous industrial pollutants. Mercury can seep out of landfills and contaminate waterways and soil and is so toxic that the mercury contained in one fluorescent tube can pollute 30,000 litres of water beyond safe drinking standards. Recycling old fluorescent tubes prevents pollution of the environment and allows the glass, aluminium and other materials in the tubes to be re-used. It should be noted that the newer compact fluorescent tubes cannot be placed in the collection boxes because their different shape can cause breakages inside the boxes which could release toxic materials. The fluorescent tube recycling boxes are located at: Mitre 10 – Hamilton - Coleraine Road Hamilton, Phone 5551 2777 Permewans - 57-61 Cox Street Hamilton, Phone 5572 2922 Zenith Tiles and Lighting - 199 Gray Street Hamilton, Phone 5572 3619 AWM Electrical - 261 Gray Street Hamilton, Phone 5572 4844 Hamilton Landfill - Elijah Street Hamilton, Phone 5571 2543 Kelly’s Mitre 10 Penshurst - 76 Bell Street Penshurst, Phone 5576 5549 Kelly & Henson -Dunkeld - Parker Street Dunkeld, Phone 5577 2255 Coleraine Joinery & Building Supplies - Whyte Street Coleraine, Phone 5575 2382 Balmoral General Store 14 Glendinning St BALMORAL Phone 5570 1333 For further information or enquiries about this program, please contact Council's Sustainability Coordinator on 5573 0220.
