With over 25 years of experience behind us, we are innovators in the lamp-recycling industry and the largest lamp recycler in Canada. Our company has developed a wide range of lamp-recycling methods that can accommodate many needs. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and other energy-efficient lighting including high intensity discharge (HID) and linear fluorescent lamps contain small amounts of mercury (also known as quicksilver), an element essential to achieving energy savings. As effective as it is at enabling white light, mercury is also highly toxic. Problems can occur when a mercury-bearing lamp breaks, releasing mercury contaminated phosphor powder and mercury vapour, particularly when it’s at end of life. Mercury does not break down or decompose in landfill, but it does bio-accumulate in our environment and in humans. Unlike specialty companies, Aevitas makes it easy to recycle lamps. We are the only company in Canada that can also recycle transformer oil, batteries, PCB ballasts, fixtures and other electrical equipment, as well as manage a resource recovery program for non-compliant, obsolete and end-of-life assets, and much more.
