Mercury Recycling opened the UK's first Lamp Recycling Facility in 1996. What was then 'State of the Art' equipment was imported from Europe and the first customers began sending in their tubes and discharge lamps for recycling. The majority of these new customers were aware of the toxic effects of mercury, found in fluorescent tubes and most discharge lamps, and wanted the most environmentally friendly method of disposal. The purchase of a Superior Distiller, to recover the mercury from the spent lamps, was a key factor in persuading potential clients that there was an alternative to the damaging landfill practice. In 2001 Mercury Recycling Group Plc became AIM Listed on the London Stock Exchange.
