The release of mercury into the environment is a dangerous hazard of handling lighting products with this element. Mercury is a neurotoxin that can damage or destroy tissues of the nervous system. It is highly toxic and can cause serious health issues.
As the cost of raw materials continues to rise, recycling of bulbs, ballasts, and batteries presents a economical and viable option for producers. Due to the hazardous nature of the product’s makeup, federal and state agencies have enacted, or are in the process of enacting, strict regulation and financial consequences for companies or individuals found disposing of this waste improperly.
