Why Recycle?

Fluorescent lamps provide significant savings for commercial properties. They are four to five times more efficient than incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent lamps also last longer than incandescent or halogen lamps, and require less frequent replacement.

However, energy efficient lighting products, such as fluorescent lamps, CFLs, and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, contain small amounts of mercury. The improper disposal of large numbers of lamps creates mercury pollution in the environment.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has special regulations for mercury-containing lamps. Our service eliminates paperwork, alleviates transport issues, and helps keep disposal costs low. We make lamp recycling easy.

In April, the Department of Energy finalized two rules requiring manufactures to sell energy-efficient lightbulbs. This means older, inefficient lightbulbs that don’t meet the new standards can no longer be manufactured and sold. The primary purposes for these rules are to drive down electricity use, save consumers money, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

It’s estimated that schools spend billions of dollars annually on energy, and it’s often the second-highest operating expenditure (following personnel costs). Each year, these expenses continue to increase while budgets often decrease, leading educators to look for ways to save money throughout the year. One way is by making some lighting updates that are more energy efficient, therefore saving money on energy bills. LED uses up to 75% less energy than conventional lighting systems, which keeps dollars in your budget for other important things.
