The Bulb Eater® plays a role in helping the Merchandise Mart, the world’s largest commercial building (and one of the country’s largest recyclers), stay “green” year-round, according to this video from Chicago’s ABC7 News.
The Bulb Eater breaks down spent fluorescent bulbs for easy storage and transport for recycling, while safely capturing the mercury vapor from the lamps. “It all gets shipped in a barrel and gets turned back into light bulbs” said Kristen Pabst, assistant property manager at the Merchandise Mart.
The Bulb Eater can reduce overall lamp recycling costs by up to 50% by saving up to 20 hours of labor per 1000 lamps and 80% of the storage space of intact lamps. Click here to learn more or request pricing.
