RecyFluo is a non-profit program to responsibly recycle mercury-containing lights in Quebec. Since July 14, 2012, RecycFluo has accepted household quantities of burnt-out mercury-containing lights from consumers at collection sites across the province. Beginning October 1, 2012, the program will accept all volumes of mercury-containing lights for recycling without charge, including those used in residential, institutional, commercial and industrial applications. Collection options differ based on the quantity of lights to be recycled.
RecycFluo is managed by Product Care Association (PCA), a non-profit industry association. Product Care finalized an agency agreement in June with RECYC-QUÉBEC, the oversight agency in Quebec for product stewardship programs, as an organization that can implement a "recovery and reclamation system" for mercury-containing lights on behalf of its members. The program has been developed in response to the Quebec Regulation respecting the recovery and reclamation of products by enterprises.
