Disposal of fluorescent lamps is mandatory as this kind of light sources contain harmful to living organisms substances. Throw them in the trash is strictly prohibited because prolonged exposure to mercury in the worst case can lead to death. Before buying you need to check with friends or from the seller where to take these lamps.

Today there are organizations which provide services for the collection and disposal of gas-discharge light sources in accordance with JECFA 90.02.140149 all-Russian classification of products on types of economic activities. The contract with such companies based in KOSHU Classification of operations of sector of public administration.


Fluorescent lamps can be operated on objects of different purpose in hospitals, schools, private homes apartments schools schools universities. This type of lighting device is used in the organization of lighting system of trading centers of banks. Another area of application production sites.

Lamps of this type are called fluorescent lamps from which it follows that the most effective is their use in large areas where there is insufficient natural lighting.

With the improvement of the design appeared more convenient to operate compact design. They just screwed instead of incandescent lamps because in both cases, a single cap type E14 or E27. And linear with pin holders and compact models light sources pass through the JECFA per code because the bulb was identical in both cases. About where to recycle fluorescent lighting you need to know before you buy them so that in case of failure to keep a dangerous product at home.

The design is based on a flask with the gaseous contents of the electrode base one or two depending on performance. For normal operation such lighting necessary starting element of the electromagnetic or electronic type. The principle of operation of these light sources based on the phenomenon of luminescence.

When an electric current is applied between the electrodes formed by the arc discharge. Due to the special composition of the gas filling the bulb with inert gas the mercury vapor during the passage of electric current through the medium, a UV radiation.

Various types and forms

But UV is invisible to the eye. To lamp emitted light in the process, we use the phenomenon of luminescence for which internal walls are covered with phosphor. This substance is able to absorb ultraviolet light and produce visible light. Changing the composition of the substance may be a lamp special purpose for example for plant growth.

At the end of the service life of fluorescent lamps to specialized organizations like merkurijj, OOO disposed of them. The following services are provided under the KOGS and JECFA. Even before buying you need to specify where to put these light sources at the end of the service life or in case of damage to the bulb.

Main recommendations which will allow you to operate a fluorescent lamp as long as possible

In addition, you need to choose the light source being guided by a color temperature of the radiation.

For example, model the value of which lies in the range from 2 500 to 3 500 To provide a warm light. But the performance with a color temperature of more than 6 000 To provide cold light.

If luminaire with mercury vapor at home crashed and it happened in a single order just one light then pass the product to a place of residence to the management company. This does not require the preparation of a contract on the basis of JECFA and KOGS because the service is free of charge. About that much, then go the light sources to worry is not necessary.

In management companies for the collection of gas discharge lamps provided by the containers after some time of non-working products are sent for processing.

Specialized companies do to pass the non-working light sources generally work directly only with legal entities. For example, in Saint-Petersburg deals with the disposal of merkurijj, OOO.

To calculate the total value of the contract is made on the basis of JECFA and KOGS. The price of the acceptance and disposal of one unit can be different depending upon the shape and size of the bulb from 12 to 30 rubles. PCs.. About where in your city can contact you should ask in advance.

Thus the recycling of fluorescent light sources is the responsibility of each user. A private individual is enough to know where to put the product outside of its acceptance is free. The contract on the basis of the KOGS and JECFA are not retained.

Legal entities should use the services of a specialized company in the city of merkurijj, OOO in Saint-Petersburg. In this case, the provision of services evidenced by a contract in accordance with JECFA. Disposal of hazardous wastes which are included in the other group is code JECFA 90.02.140149.
