Air Cycle Corporation Crosses the Pond, Partners with New UK Distributor

Air Cycle Corporation is pleased to announce that we have entered into a distribution agreement with JARSHIRE Waste and Recycling located in Slough, UK to represent us in the United Kingdom.

In addition to providing broad waste services in the UK, they have developed a mobile Material Recycling Facility (MRF) that is typically deployed on drilling rigs. Our Bulb Eater® technology will be seamlessly incorporated into their existing MRF concept, which also typically includes bailing equipment, compactors and other volume reduction technology.

“JARSHIRE had tried a few other bulb crushers supplied in the past, but we were then recommended to use Air Cycle from one of our customers who had bought other equipment from us in the past, and they said they had also used Air Cycle and other suppliers of Bulb Eaters and that Air Cycle’s unit was the best on the market for quality, price and after sales. We are delighted to be representing Air Cycle.” – Nick Jobson: JARSHIRE

 

 

Why include The Bulb Eater®?

The Bulb Eater® crushes spent fluorescent lamps of any length into 100% recyclable material and captures over 99.99% of the vapors released. The system, which is mounted onto a 55-gallon container, can hold up to 1359 4-foot fluorescent lamps.

 

The Bulb Eater® will help your company:

  • Eliminate storage hassles – Reduce your needed storage space for lamps, The Bulb Eater® lamp crusher crushes all length lamps.
  • Reduce handling – Save roughly 20 hours of labor per 1000 lamps by crushing rather than boxing the lamps!
  • Create a safer work environment – The 0.001% emission rate from the Bulb Eater® lamp crushing system provides for less mercury vapor emission.
  • Cut costs – By pre-crushing the lamps, facilities are able to save money on their lamp recycling costs.

 

Our current customers rave about the ease of our programs.

We’ve had much success simplifying our recycling program using the Bulb Eater 3 we especially like the new features including the ability to crush our ever-increasing Compact Fluorescent lamps. Great Value.” – Brandon Goulet, Markley Group

Prepare Your Budget for the Upcoming Fiscal Year

Are you planning your budget for the next fiscal year? Don’t forget about your corporate universal waste recycling program!

As the end of the fiscal year approaches, you may be wondering how you can appropriately disperse funds in the coming year. Spend your budget in a way that isn’t wasteful and will benefit your company as a whole.

Air Cycle offers companies simple, sustainable solutions that allow you to comply with Universal Waste regulations. Here are three of our solutions you may want to consider this year:

  1. Bulk Pick Up

For facilities over 150,000 square feet, bulk pickups provide a cost-effective solution for recycling large amounts of universal waste. Do you have fluorescent lamps, ballasts, batteries, and electronic waste you need removed? Our service area covers all 48 lower states.

Your packaged waste is picked up and delivered to one of our permitted recycling partners. Once the waste is recycled, you’ll receive a Certificate of Recycling to confirm proper handling and processing.

 

  1. The Bulb Eater 3

If saving money and creating a safer work environment are important to you, consider our Bulb Eater machines. The Bulb Eater 3 (and Bulb Eater 3L, created especially for smaller facilities) reduces risk and liability associated with improper disposal and reduces labor by up to 20 hours per 1,000 lamps. Why not make lamp recycling fun, while also saving money.

 

  1. EasyPak with Vapor Shield

We’ve proven that our EasyPak boxes beat out the competition. Not only are they incredibly easy to use, they’re also designed for simple compliance. Select your containers online, fill them according to the instructions listed, and send them back to us. Once you’re done, you can reorder boxes, or better yet, enroll in our Auto Reorder program. Your order history, Certificates of Recycling and recycling reports are readily available on-line.

 

At Air Cycle, we believe that recycling should be easy, not difficult or time consuming. That’s why we offer some of the easiest, most effective recycling programs in the world. Contact us today to learn more about our solutions: 800.909.9709.

Air Cycle’s EasyPak Lamp Recycling Boxes Beat out the Competition

We talk a big game about our products, but it’s not just hype! We put our recycling solutions to the test in a live demonstration. Air Cycle’s EasyPak lamp recycling boxes make packing spent lamps easier and safer thanks to our unique Vapor Shield design technology! Watch our demonstration to see the ease facility workers have when using EasyPak with Vapor Shield from Air Cycle Corporation.


With only 3 simple parts, you can pack your lamps without worrying about the complicated assembly process our competitors use. Don’t mess with boxes and bags or boxes-in-bags-in-boxes – the inner boxes and outer bags lead to more waste and increase the chances of snagging on the lamps during the fill process. Utilize the full capacity of the container while our Vapor Shield technology protects your employees in the event of incidental lamp breakage!

Visit aircycle.com for more details on Easy Pak and the Vapor Shield technology developed by Air Cycle and find out how you can efficiently recycle your lamps and other Universal Waste using our pre-paid recycling containers.

Air Cycle Helped Improve Big Lake’s Household Hazardous Waste Management Program

The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility of Riley County, Kansas partnered with Air Cycle Corporation to improve the program’s efficiency, while reducing the cost of spent fluorescent and HID lamps recycling.  Follow this account of the process that lead to our solution.


The Problem

Because the Big Lake HHW facility services 11 total counties in the area, fluorescent lamps quickly add up. Since lamps are lightweight and bulky, they take a disproportionate amount of space in the HHW facility storage area, as well as in the truck transporting it to the recycling facility. Fluorescent lamps represented 7.6% of the waste generated in Kansas, making Air Cycle’s Bulb Eater a perfect fit for Household Hazardous Waste programs. When Steve Oliver took over the HHW program, the facility had a large number of fluorescent lamps that had accumulated over a nearly 12-month period. He estimated that approximately 9,700 lamps of all shapes and sizes were being stored.

 

The Solution

The Riley County personnel purchased the Bulb Eater 3L model, which allowed them to process straight, circular, u-bent, and compact fluorescent lamps. It took Big Lake HHW personnel a total of 14.5 hours over the course of four days to complete the task of crushing the one-year spent lamp backlog. The completed project generated nine full drums and one partial drum of waste. Big Lake officials also tracked the amount and types of lamps placed in each drum and the resulting weight.

 

Impact

Over 14.5 hours, 9,268 total lamps were processed. When factoring the labor required to package, label, palletize the lamps to prepare them for shipment, and the recycling cost savings of transporting intact lamps versus crushed lamps, county officials estimated their savings to be $4,265.00 or about 50%, which allowed them to reduce the fees charged to users of their HHW programs by 50%.
