When we started, we were able to offer free containers for spent lamps, ballasts, batteries, and compact fluorescent lamps. Over the past few years, the company that we used to process the items changed its policies. The company began charging for the containers. Also, we are charged freight and other fees from the federal government, which we have had to add to the base costs of the recycled lamps.
New Recycling Partner
Due to these changes, we partnered with Veolia Environmental Services, a major recycling company in the United States. This partnership allows us to offer you a smoother process to serve your recycling needs going forward. Our new program should not affect your cost, but it will make program management easier. Your inside/outside sales representative will have pricing information available for you upon request.
How It Works
We will supply prepaid labeled lamp boxes for four linear lamps, eight linear lamps, compact fluorescent lamps, batteries, and ballasts at our location for purchase at a discounted rate and will ship them to you. Once filled, tape them shut and call the phone number on the label for a FedEx pickup. The container will be shipped to the processing center, and you will receive a detailed certificate of recycling from Veolia for your records.
Large volumes of lamps or electronic scrap, such as computers and monitors, a large pallet will be made available to handle those items. It will be prepaid and be able to be picked up by FedEx and transported to the processing facility.
Let's Work Together
We look forward to implementing our new recycling program as soon as possible and currently have all the boxes and packaging in stock and ready to ship. Let's dispose of lamps and scrap properly, so it doesn't impact the environment. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us at our office.
