University Generated Regulated Lamps
Do not throw regulated lamps in the trash!!!! They are hazardous!!
Incadescent bulbs are not regulated and currently cannot be recycled.
Examples of regulated lamps include:
- Straight Fluorescent Lamps
- Fluorescent U-Tubes
- Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL)
- High Intensity Discharge Lamps (High Pressure Sodium, Mercury Vapor, Metal Halide)
- Low Pressure Sodium
- Shattershields/Coated Lamps
Regulated lamps contain small amounts of mercury or other toxic materials. These toxic materials are not released when the bulbs are intact or in use; exposure is possible only when a bulb has been broken. Therefore, it is best to store waste in a manner that prevents breakage.
