NAHMMA Trade Show

The North American Hazardous Materials Management Association (NAHMMA) is the premier association for professionals on a mission to reduce and manage household hazardous waste. NAHMMA is a non-profit organization that supports its members with access to exclusive training opportunities and a nationwide network of people involved in the household hazardous waste management industry. The company supports the proper collection of products that contain hazardous components for recycling and proper treatment. NAHMMA will be hosting their 2017 national conference in Clearwater Beach, Florida, at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort from Sunday, August 13th until Friday, August 18th. Air Cycle will be present to talk to meeting participants about our products and services.

We are dedicated to providing simple, sustainable solutions and technologies to assist facilities in their recycling goals. Our solutions help you easily, and safely, recycle fluorescent lamps, batteries, and e-waste. Our products and services are designed to enable you to implement a comprehensive environmental program for your facility.

We will be attending the 2017 NAHMMA National Conference, promoting our Bulb Eater series, EasyPak, Bulk Pickup Services, and Total Program Management services approach.

With our Bulb Eater, many Household Hazardous Waste programs are using this technology to minimize physical labor and recycling costs. Since Bulb Eater technology can process a fluorescent lamp of any size, it makes fluorescent lamp storage safer and consumes much less space than storing lamps intact.

Our EasyPak sustainable program is an alternative for recycling lamps, batteries, electronics, and thermostat recycling containers at smaller collection facilities or in remote areas. All you have to do is fill the containers with the spent materials return them using the pre-paid UPS shipping label.

We also offer Bulk pickup services, which can pick up full drums from your Bulb Eater use or intact lamps. It can also pick up intact ballasts, batteries, and electronic waste.
