Fluorescent tubes remain a considerable risk to the environment. CPP produce and provide a range of Rigid and Flat Pack Tube Recycling containers in various sizes, using either Twin Wall Polypropylene (flatpack) or Honeycomb bonded sheet material (rigid). Legislation states that disposing of CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs) and tubes using common disposal services such as general waste and skips is illegal. These tubes contain mercury, which is a highly toxic substance that can cause enormous environmental damage and is a danger to health.
Over 100 million fluorescent and highway bulbs are disposed of each year in the UK, and until recently these have ended up in landfill sites. This causes the mercury contained within the tubes to contaminate the land and dissipate into the atmosphere. The mercury then poisons the rain, which contaminates water supplies. It only takes one tube to make 30,000 litres of water unsuitable for drinking.
