Dubai, United Arab Emirates: ME NewsWire: Lamps4U FZCO a UAE based manufacturer and distributor of energy efficient and environment friendly lighting products and fittings partners with Dulsco for their Lampswithbenefit initiative. ‘Lampswithbenfits’ is a programme that offers an environmentally Safe solution for disposal of spent lamps. This programme is designed to collect spent lamps to avoid the emission of harmful ‘mercury Vapor’. Every component is recycled for the benefit of the environment.

All fluorescent and most high intensity discharge lamps contain a small amount of mercury, a naturally occurring element that is critical for the energy-saving attributes of lamps. However, mercury is toxic and can cause an adverse effect on public health and environment. To prevent this chemical from causing harm to our environment this programme is designed to divert hazardous waste away from the landfill.
Announcing the partnership, Mr. Mahesh Patel, CEO of Lamps4U said, “We at Lamps4U are operating in exciting times today as we are extending our service to initiate green programmes. Through our partnership with Dulsco, we aim to collect as many spent lamps as possible diverting them away from the landfill. We also intend to create awareness on harmful effects of mercury. This association ensures that our environment is safe for present and future generations to come.”
A specially designed – environment friendly Vaporlok Bags will be made available through various locations, in which consumers should place spent/burnt-out lamps and drop them at our drop off bins at designated locations across UAE. Spent bulbs from these containers will be picked by our customized vehicles created especially for this programme. These lamps will be then disposed by proper methods which will not harm the environment. Consumers can log on to lampswithbenefits.ae to locate the nearest drop off location for disposing of their spent lamps.
