How to separate and discharge fluorescent lamp

  • Fluorescent lamp contains small amount of mercury (25mg per unit), the harzadous substance, which must be recycled (safely treated). When the waste fluorescent lamp is buried and incinerated without being recycled, the shape of the mercury in the fluorescent lamp does not change and permeates into the atmosphere or the soil, posing a serious threat to the human body. If you break it, the mercury will be exposed in the air, so it must be safely discharged to the dedicated collection box without being broken.
