Recycling & Disposal

Proper disposal and recycling

Proper disposal

We know that your commitment to being green is not just about saving energy; it’s about doing the right thing all the time. That’s why we offer a full recycling program for all old technologies to ensure hazardous waste is disposed of properly, glass and metal are recycled and sometimes fixtures are even re-purposed elsewhere. We hold various certifications that ensure you know we’re just as committed as you.

Management and disposal by businesses of fluorescent light bulbs and other mercury-containing bulbs are regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Universal Waste Rule (UWR) and Subtitle C hazardous waste regulations. For more information visit the EPA at
