FluoroCycle

FluoroCycle is a voluntary product stewardship scheme that seeks to increase the national recycling rate of waste mercury-containing lamps. Lamp recycling can help reduce the amount of mercury being sent to landfill.

Liverpool Council is a signatory to the FluoroCycle Scheme. Council is committed to keeping harmful mercury out of our environment, through our participation in this scheme. Council will ensure all mercury-containing lamps from its own buildings will be recycled and encourages all its residents to do the same with the recycling of mercury-containing lamps from households.

In Australia, an estimated 90 per cent of lamps that contain mercury end up in landfill each year. They are the largest single category of consumer products that contain mercury, and their disposal contributes to Australia's total annual emissions of mercury.

By recycling them correctly you can reduce the amount of mercury entering the environment and help Liverpool Council meet its commitment to reducing waste to landfill.

To find out where you can drop off and recycle your mercury-containing lamps go to the FluoroCycle website. In addition, Council accepts mercury-containing lamps at its scheduled Household Chemical Collection events and the Community Recycling Centre located at 99 Rose Street.

If you are not sure which lamps contain mercury, download the FluoroCycle factsheet which includes images.
