How to Recycle Fluorescent LCD? 

It is very important that materials containing high doses of mercury, such as light bulbs and fluorescents, are recycled after they have completed their life. Because the amount of mercury in a fluorescent varies according to the manufacturer and the year of manufacture, but is between 3.5-15 milligrams. Although the amount of mercury used in light bulbs has decreased in the last two decades, unfortunately, completely mercury-free bulbs have not yet been produced by the manufacturers. Waste fluorescents, on the other hand, are often broken when they are thrown into the landfill, trash can, or buried in the ground. On the other hand, recycling these fluorescents also enables glass, metals and other materials to be reused after recycling. 

 Fluorescent lamps is the second type of waste with the highest amount of mercury and this type of lamp must be disposed of safely. Those who dispose of these bulbs need to be careful and attentive in their premises; these materials must be disposed safely in an indoor shredder. During this process, toxic mercury and phoshorus dust in lighting products are retained with the help of filters and are disposed of without posing a risk to the environment. There are many professional facilities that perform these operations. Thanks to these facilities, approximately 99.98% of the mercury contained in the fluorescents is safely recovered.
