Ten things you should know about: Waste King's fluorescent bulb recycling procedure

Ten things you have to know about: Waste King's fluorescent bulb recycling process


Fluorescent bulbs are the best and long lasting bulbs available now. With the move toward more energy efficiency and environmental responsibility, fluorescent lights are getting to be more common fixtures internationally. Below are some of the matters that are important that you should know about Fluorescent lightbulbs:


Waste King's nine-step fluorescent bulb recycling process is:


Waste King delivers a specially designed container – known colloquially, as a ‘coffin' - to the customer's premises for the safe collection and storage of spent lamps. The approximate capacity of a coffin, for one inch fluorescent tubes, is 150 x 6ft or 450 x 2ft tubes.


Prior to being recycled, the container with the spent lamps is accumulated and taken to Waste King's site for sorting.


The container is placed in the site storage area to await processing.


The lamps are loaded by waste King onto racked trolleys for processing in separationplant and a puppy love.


It allows processing of the various sorts and sizes of lamps, splitting them into lead glass /ferrous metal parts, aluminium end caps, soda lime glass and phosphor powder.


The crush and sieve plant functions at sub-pressure, therefore preventing mercury from being released into the environment as exhaust air (which can be continuously eliminated through the internal carbon filters).


Separation plant and the whole puppy love is incorporated in a container by which the tubes are fed by a conveyor into a hammer mill. The resultant fractions that are combined are air-conveyed through a separation tower, where metal and the glass are removed. The metal and glass components are then smashed farther and air-carried to a second separation tower. The glass fragments are fed into a rotary drum-feeder and transferred to a discharge conveyor to transfer the by-product from the processing unit.


The air stream that's passed through the separation towers features phosphor powder.


This air stream passes through a cyclone, where the powder is gathered in a distiller barrel, and after that passes through two dust filters, where the remaining dust is removed and deposited in distiller barrels.


Recovered glass, aluminium Skip Hire Milton Keynes and metals are sent to other companies to be used as raw materials or for additional processing.




Every time a ‘coffin' has filled with spent fluorescent tubes, Waste King's operatives will arrive, gather the the whole process and the container continues.
