Lamps & Bulbs Recycling
Why Recycle Lamps & Bulbs With Us?
Fluorescent lamps and mixed bulbs such as HIDs, LEDs, sodium vapor and CFLs have been installed in most commercial facilities and can be found in a wide variety of shapes and styles. That's why g2 offers different sizes of lamp recycling containers to specifically address your needs, and they are better-designed than other lamp containers to help your facilities comply with universal waste regulations. Our boxes are sturdy, come with a liner and are reclosable. Straight fluorescent lamp boxes also include a cardboard reinforcement insert for added strength. Coupled with our recycling data system's ability to track container use and expiration via exception reports, our program is a phenomenal tool to help manage compliance.
How Does It Work?
Where Can I Find My Program Data?
When we set up your recycling account, you are provided with secure login access to an online data system that contains all your recycling records. Every single container is tracked and is individually recorded, including by location if you have multiple locations. So you can know instantly if any of your facilities are not recycling! You can also query the database to see your records over a set period of time, or within a certain geography. And finally, you can also download certificates of recycling if you need paper-based records.
What Are the Regulations?
Fluorescent, neon, CFL, HID and other types of lamps are considered "universal waste," which basically means they are federal hazardous waste, but with greatly reduced handling requirements. Nevertheless, there are still some basic rules that need to be followed: Having good containers that are dated and are reviewed to ensure they do not exceed allowed storage time for universal waste. This can be quickly determined, as mentioned above, using our database system and our container tracking.
