FluoroCycle- reducing mercury entering the environment


We are a signatory of the FluoroCycle scheme, which aims to reduce the amount of mercury entering the environment from the disposal of lighting, tubes and globes. 

We have been recycling around 4 tonnes of lamps each year since 2007, however by signing onto the voluntary scheme in 2012, we confirmed our commitment to recycling mercury-containing lamps to reduce our impact on the environment.

In addition to mercury other components can be recycled including glass, aluminium and metals. As part of the scheme we submit an annual statement of compliance to maintain our signatory status.

Lamps are recycled from our:

  • street lamp bulk replacement program by contractors
  • street lighting lamp replacements by employees
  • depots and offices
  • EnergyLight program
  • Substations.

FluoroCycle is administered by the Lighting Council Australia and is as an Australian Government Accredited Product Stewardship initiative.
