About Light Bulb Recycling

As one of the first fluorescent lamp recyclers in the US, Recycle Technologies has been a leader in lightbulb processing since 1993. New LED technology is being introduced and as a result we are seeing an all-time high in lamp recycling. As a business or environmentally conscious residential consumer you want to ensure you are bringing your lamps to a responsible recycler.

We are not a broker, there is no middle man with us. This means your recycling is performed by us in one of our Midwest facilities. Items are not shipped off to someone else or sent to a landfill.

Most importantly, all items are handled and recycled responsibly. Because of our commitment to recycling done right, our team, building and vehicles are all certified in handling your Universal Waste Therefore, any concerns you may have regarding your own policies, and procedures when it comes to monitoring recycled bulbs will be eliminated! We certify that for you each and every time. We like to call it Recycling Done Right!

DOT requires careful packaging of bulbs for transport. The best method to package your used light bulbs is to use one of our fiber bins. If you do not have one of our bins, you can reuse the boxes your replacement bulbs came in.

Recycle Technologies can deliver packing materials to customers prior to pick up; let us help provide you with all your Universal Waste packaging needs. Contact us today!
