Lamp Recycling

Aevitas innovated the lamp-recycling process over 30 years ago.

Lamp recycling

Our lamp recycling program is unparalleled, recycling over 10,000,000 mercury bearing and non-mercury lamps per year.

With these types of numbers, it’s easy to see why we are the largest lamp recycler in Canada and not by accident. Aevitas innovated the lamp-recycling process over 30 years ago ensuring responsible recovery in a safe environment. Linear fluorescent lamps, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and other lighting such as high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, contain a small amount of mercury.  Unfortunately, we now understand that mercury is highly toxic and does bio-accumulate in humans and our environment. Aevitas operates a safe and efficient process to capture the mercury and contaminated material and separate other lamp components for reuse.

We recycle all types of lamps:

  • Fluorescent tube
  • Compact fluorescent (CFL)
  • High density discharge / mercury vapour (HID)
  • Sodium vapor (low & high pressure)
  • Incandescent
  • Halogen
  • Ultra violet (UV)
  • Light emitting diode (LED)
  • Shatter proof
  • Other specialized lamps


Only have enough to fill one box? No problem, we also offer our Recycle-By-Mail program for recycling small quantities of spent lamps. It’s as easy as 1-2-3…click, pack, ship. Find out more about this nation-wide service program.
