Fluorescent tube recycling

Fluorescent tube recycling in Australia

Potential hazards


Most fluorescent tubes contain mercury, a toxic material which is environmentally hazardous if disposed of incorrectly. Generally, the higher the power usage, the more mercury is required to operate the lamp, and in many places, dumping fluorescent tubes is outright forbidden.

The mercury, as well as the glass, phosphor and aluminium contained in the lamps, can be safely recovered and reused if sent to a well-equipped recycling facility.

What can be recycled?


  • High-intensity discharge (HID) lamps used for street lighting
  • Linear fluorescent tubes used in commercial and public buildings
  • Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) used in homes
  • Neon tubes used in signs

What we do


The DocShop will deliver a pre-paid recycling box to your business for you to place all your used fluorescent tubes into to store until pickup day. Be careful when removing and storing the tubes though, because broken tubes cannot be recycled.
