U-Waste Recycling Solutions (U-WRS) accept many different type of lamps including straight fluorescent tubes, u-shaped, mercury vapor, metal halide, arc, compact fluorescent, flood lamps, incandescent, halogen and HID lamps to name a few.
Did you know that all fluorescent and HID lamps contain small amounts of mercury; a key element in energy efficient lighting. Mercury is toxic and it is important that lamps and other products that contain mercury be recycled properly.
U-WRS provides environmentally compliant lamp handling solutions that are second to none. Our facility is permitted by the EPA to accept intact and pre-crushed lamps of all types and sizes. Fluorescent lamps will be transported to and from our facility in accordance with local state and federal regulations. The containers will be inventoried, stored and staged prior to being shipped off site for processing. After temporary storage, the lamps will be shipped to our downstream facility for processing.
