We are Nova Scotia’s first established mercury lamp recycling company.
Our service is a unique set up whereby we supply special constructed cartons to safely contain lamps for shipments or to drop off at our recycling plant. The lamps are then packed in special stocking bins for processing through our state of the art processing plant that will separate the phosphor powder, aluminum end caps and glass for reuse in other applications.
What We Recycle
Dan-X Recycling is committed to offering its recycling
service to all Nova Scotians to ensure the environment is being protected from mercury waste that is being captured in the lamps.
When these bulbs are not properly recycled, the mercury contained inside of them makes it's way to our land and water. This poses a severe health risk to not only wildlife, but to humans who consume them as well.
Dan-X Recycling has created specially designed four-foot and eight-foot cartons to place all lamps into, destined for recycling. The 4ft cartons hold 56 t-12 lamps or 130 t-8 lamps. The 8ft cartons hold 40 t-12 lamps or 96 t-8 lamps, as well as approximately 300 CFL bulbs and approximately 60 metal halide lamps. Each carton was designed to be managed and handled with the assurance that the lamps could be shipped or dropped off at our facility.
These cartons can be shipped to the desired sites throughout Nova Scotia so lamps could be picked up or freighted back to our facility.
