Alpha-Cure work very closely with Recolight who coordinate the UK’s leading specialist Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) compliance scheme for the lighting industry.
We offer all our UK customers a free-of-charge disposal service for UV lamps. This follows the WEEE regulations that require an increase in the recycling of waste equipment to reduce the amount of electrical equipment and harmful chemicals going into landfill. It is illegal to dispose of your UV lamps in normal household waste due to the mercury contained within the lamps. To encourage our customers to help protect the environment, we just need you to send the lamps to us and we will ensure the lamps are disposed of correctly.
If you are outside the UK, Alpha-Cure are unable to collect, carry or accept waste from you. We recommend getting in touch with your local waste disposal company to see if they can recycle your UV lamps and ensure that your business is compliant with the environmental guidelines in your country.
Please contact our offices to find out more information or to arrange lamp disposal. You could also have a look at the Recolight website to see what they offer and how they recycle your lamps. Visit www.recolight.co.uk for more information.
