Dulsco partners with Lamps4u to recycle CFL bulbs
Dulsco will provide disposal services of unbroken CFL bulbs for residential, commercial, and industrial customers in the UAE
Human resources and waste management firm, Dulsco, is offering to collect energy-efficient lightbulbs across the UAE.
Dulsco has partnered with Dubai based Lamps4u, a sustainable solutions and technologies company in order to process the recycling of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs in an eco-friendly manner.
The partnership comes in wake of Dulsco’s endeavours to support Dubai’s green initiative campaign.
Lamps4u Fzco is a Dubai Municipality approved lamp disposal firm which has developed a structure to support lamp disposal service across the GCC.
S. Madhumohan, director waste management, Dulsco, said: “We have been deploying a well thought through a customised strategy to recycle CFL bulbs across the emirate.
“Dulsco will provide essential services for disposal options for residential, commercial, and industrial customers who would want to dispose their used bulbs. We are committed to developing such recycling initiatives and services in order to help people protect our environment.”
CFLs are disposed in landfills along with regular household waste in the recent times. Since 2014, the sales of incandescent light bulbs were banned, post directions by the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA).
The services offered by Dulsco involved in the bulb recycling service include collection, transportation of used unbroken lamps, bulbs, tube lights and CFL’s.
Dulsco will be recycling used unbroken bulbs, provide environmentally safe storage containers, and supply bulb crushers.
Madhumohan added: “The used CFL’s are collected using specially designed environmentally safe Easypack containers.
“These containers are then collected and transported using approved transport vehicles. The lamps, bulbs, fluorescent tube lights and CFL’s are processed using specialised equipment, separating the lamps into recyclable materials.
“The whole process is eco-friendly with a zero landfill concept.”
