    Hi all,

    Just like to find out what can one do with old t5's that is still working but they are over a year old.

    I know this isn't the greatest question but i need to know i like to recycle stuff.

    sorry about the spelling.

    Morne, it is a very good question and thanks for thinking green! There are a number of green recycling areas in Johannesburg that do garden waste, plastic, glass etc, check with your local one to see who recycles old flourescent tubes. CFL's (energy savers) are recycled at local Woolworths and PnP's, but flourescents are not easily recycled. The fact that they contain mercury makes the recycling of said tubes imperative.

    Check here for a list of e-recyclers in Gauteng Recyclers | eWASA
