RECYCLE LIGHT BULBS
While lamps are not a major source of mercury pollution, the improper disposal of large numbers of lamps does add mercury into the environment. The release of mercury is most likely to occur when the lamp is thrown in a garbage truck or dumpster. The best way to prevent the release of mercury from lighting is to recycle lamps and not dispose of them in the solid waste stream, recycling lamps capture the mercury, allowing it to be reused.
Aquaria Services has implemented a program where in ALL aquarium and pond light bulbs are collected and recycled through a certified program
Today’s common household batteries are not thought to pose as great of a threat to properly equipped modern landfills as they used to because they contain much less mercury than their predecessors. Never the less, environmentally concerned consumers might feel better recycling such batteries anyway, as they still do contain trace amounts of mercury and other potential toxic materials. Aquaria Services can assist with their recycle program.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Unfortunately many of the ocean’s reefs are in decline and the general consensus is that various forms of pollution are the biggest reasons why. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the air and water plus silt, fertilizer and sewage runoff are destroying the pristine environments that the reefs need to survive.
