Fluorescent Bulb & Lamp Recycling
Bulbs & Lamps have been around for many years. Recycling them has always been a necessary yet expensive system. Mercury is a toxic cancer causing element that helps power many of the lamps in use today. Though there is only a small amount inside of the tubes it is best to not break them or throw them away. We offer a low cost service for the bulbs that can be done by iteself or with our other services.
If you already have a service for E-recycling, Data Destrcution or Junk removal, you will only be charged for the tubes! This especially great for our commercial clients who want to do a spring clean up and need someone as a one stop shop.
