Our New Year’s Resolutions – Improve Efficiency and Safety, Save Space!

Improve Recycling Efficiency 

The Bulb Eater® effectively crushes lamps and captures mercury vapor in under one second, saving roughly 20 hours of labor per 1000 lamps. Pre-crushing lamps saves money by having less to ship, saving anywhere from 10 cents to $1 per lamp! Our nationwide recycling program covers 48 states and we can also recycle your used batteries, electronics, and ballasts when we service your crushed lamps.

Increase Workplace Safety

Lamps are made of glass and are easily broken, which introduces the risk of cuts and employee exposure to harmful mercury vapors when broken. Due to this, spent lamps should be handled as little as possible to reduce these risks. With a drum top lamp crushing system, spent lamps only need to be handled once, leading to a safer workplace.

The Bulb Eater® 3 boasts a 0.001% emissions rate, effectively reducing the risk of exposure to mercury.

Save Space

The Bulb Eater® 3 has the power to crush lamps of any size into a 55-gallon drum, eliminating the need to store spent lamps while waiting for pickup. By crushing up to 1350 T8 4’ lamps per 55-gallon drum, you could save yourself the trouble of having a storage problem in your facility.
