Costs and safety

Hazardous materials
Mercury is the main component of fluorescent bulbs. Given its adverse effects on the environment, the Environment Protection Agency designated mercury as a hazardous substance. The safe destruction of fluorescent bulbs makes it possible to avoid the uncontrolled release of mercury and phosphorous powder.
Related dangers
At the end of their service life, it is necessary to dispose of fluorescent bulbs safely, without breaking them in order to avoid releasing mercury and phosphorous vapors and dust in the atmosphere. The handling of bulbs when replacing, packaging, shipping or unloading them presents many opportunities for breakage and the uncontrolled release of mercury and phosphorous liquid or vapor.

Significant advantages

Reduced volume
of recyclable materials

Opting to crush fluorescent bulbs close to their replacement site considerably reduces the volume of materials sent for recycling.

Cost savings
(recycling)

The Dextrite crusher makes it possible to reduce shipping costs, since the waste from crushed fluorescent bulbs is fully contained in an airtight drum.

Reduced
risks

Dextrite fluorescent bulb crushers reduce the release of mercury in the atmosphere to levels below the maximum acceptable concentration standard.
