Light Bulbs

Mercury in landfill converts to the toxic Methylmercury and spreads through the wider environment through air, water and soil.

The University of Melbourne is now recognised for its commitment to reducing the amount of mercury entering the environment from the disposal of waste containing mercury-lighting. We dispose of our light globes responsibly and have signed the FluoroCycle Signatory Commitment.

The University of Melbourne has a collection point for fluorescent and other types of light globes at Gate 2 Physics yard.
