Lamps contain a small amount of mercury as it is essential for achieving energy savings. Compact fluorescent lamps and other energy-efficient lighting, such as linear fluorescent and high intensity lamps also contain mercury for the same reason. Although mercury is effective at enabling white light, it is also highly toxic. In case a lamp breaks, it releases mercury vapour and mercury-contaminated phosphor powder. Mercury does not decompose or break down in landfill, but does bio-accumulate in humans and our environment.
