Light bulbs and florescent lamps contain mercury vapors and metals that are hazardous to the environment. When they get used up and reach end-of-life, how can you safely dispose of them? The handling of this e-waste is legislated by government, making it important to comply with regulations so you and your organization are not at risk.
Greentec has the expertise and technology to properly recycle this material at end-of-life. Don’t put yourself, other people, the environment or your business at risk.
Our Light Bulb Recycling Solution
Using innovative technology, we recycle light bulbs and lamps — including linear fluorescent tubes, high density bulbs, compact fluorescent lamps, LED lamps, halogen lamps and incandescent lamps.
Our Blubox technology was developed in Switzerland to recycle lamps containing mercury in a safe and cost-effective manner. With our services, you can safely recycle your light bulbs with environmentally compliant and operator-friendly processing technology.
We have recycling solutions for large and small quantities of fluorescent light bulbs and ballasts. Whether you have small volumes resulting from facilities maintenance, or have larger volumes as a result of re-lamp or retrofit projects, Greentec has a solution for you.

Greentec is an approved process for Ontario’s Take Back the Light program. We pick-up used bulbs directly from your company or you can ship your old lamps to our recycling facility. Please contact us about our collection box and container options.
Here’s How We Do It:
Our innovative lamp recycling technology is a fully automated process packed in a 40 foot HC container, which is constantly under negative pressure and therefore meets the highest safety standards. The machine separates the hazardous particles and extracts valuable particles for further processing.
