Title:Environmental Fact Sheet: Options Proposed for Managing Discarded Fluorescent and Other Lights That Contain Mercury
Document Date:07/15/1994
Description:This fact sheet discusses the proposed two options for managing spent mercury-containing lights, such as fluorescent bulbs and high intensity discharge lamps: (1) exclusion of mercury-containing lamps from regulation as hazardous waste if disposed of in certain municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLFs) or mercury-reclamation facilities (prohibits incineration in municipal waste combustors); (2) addition of mercury-containing lamps to the proposed universal waste system for certain widely generated hazardous wastes (primarily nickel-cadmium batteries and canceled pesticides), allowing generators to ship their lamps without a hazardous waste manifest and store lamps for a longer time.
Topics:Mercury Wastes, Hazardous Waste, Municipal Solid Waste, Generators, Manifest, Universal Waste
