Lamp Recycling Matters

Improperly disposed of mercury-containing lamps pose a significant risk to the environment. We divert leftover lamps from businesses and consumers and help to recycle them into new reusable products. In all, your leftover lamps are recycled into environmentally responsible products such as metal, glass, and mercury, ensuring they don't end up in landfills.

We are also a member of the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) and can issue certificates of recycling. If you are a building manager these certificates of recycling can help your building get recognized or continue to maintain your ranking with associations like LEED and BOMA BEST.
