Fluorescent light bulbs are widely and commonly used as an efficient and green lighting solution. Unfortunately the improper disposal of these light bulbs releases hazardous mercury gas. Companies are required by law to dispose of their used light bulbs properly and in an ethical manner to ensure sustainability measures are being met by each company.
Our services take liability away from our clients as we provide a comprehensive solution which includes the necessary transportation, containers for handling, and the recycling of the bulbs.
E-Waste Africa is the first proudly South African company to have officially commissioned the award winning Balcan MP8000 bulb recycling plant in 2014, thus making us a certified market leader in our industry. E-Waste Africa also officially received its HH Waste Management license from the Department of Environment making it the first legally compliant and operational recycling facility in South Africa.
