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.
