Considering an LED Retrofit for your traditional lighting fixtures and fluorescents? Let Air Cycle alleviate the waste of your old fluorescent lights with our Bulk Pickup, or EasyPak services that take the hassle out of recycling. When it’s time to switch to LED lighting in your facility it can be costly, but with our efficient services Air Cycle will take the waste off your hands and assist you to go-green economically.
Air Cycle’s Bulk Pickup Recycling Service is an ideal option for larger facilities looking to recycle their old lamps. The service allows the user to schedule a pickup online, or by phone (800.909.9709), and determines pricing based on the quantity and location of waste to be picked up. After waste is taken, it is delivered to one of Air Cycle’s certified recycling partners. Finally, a Certificate of Recycling is provided to the facility to show their waste was properly disposed. Bulk Pickup is quick, and easy for anyone. Instead of improperly throwing out your fluorescent bulbs in the shift to LED, recycle them!
For smaller quantities, our EasyPak Program is another simple recycling service that is provided in three easy steps. The user merely selects a container, fills it with waste, and returns it with the prepaid shipping label for recycling. Additionally, Air Cycle has created an online tracking system to verify that your lamp waste has been recycled properly. EasyPak can be used by any size facility, and is the attractive choice for your lamps when they are no longer for use.
Considering the high initial cost and installation of LED lighting, let Air Cycle remove the angst of recycling your old lamps. Air Cycle strives to make the fluorescent lamp disposal affordable and easy for facilities looking to pursue the switch. Contact us at our email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone number listed above, for more information and help to make the environment a better place.
