It is estimated that Australia generates from 30+ million end-of-life fluorescent tubes and a further 20+ million end-of-life mercury-containing globes (CFL/HID etc). Currently, around 96% of these end up in landfill.

Mercury is a potent neurotoxin that contaminates water supplies through leakage from landfill.

There is growing environmental and social desire to eliminate dangerous chemicals from entering landfill and subsequently finding their way into waterways and our living environment.

At the same time, it is also highly desirable to recycle as much metal and glass to further reduce the community's carbon footprint.

The Federal Government recently launched the FluoroCycle Scheme (Sep 2010), which is indicative of the issue's growing importance.
