Air Cycle Highlights Many Accomplishments This Year

Did you know that the national lamp recycling rate in the commercial and industrial sectors is at only 30%? At Air Cycle, we make it our goal to provide easy, time-saving, and affordable solutions for corporate waste recycling to help increase those recycling numbers. In 2017, we were able to expand our reach and continue to help our customers. Below are a few of things that we accomplished in 2017 that will work to increase national recycling rates:

New Product Launch

Bulb Eater 3LThis year, Air Cycle released a new addition into our bulb crusher family of products: The Bulb Eater 3L (BE3L). With a more compact size, the BE3L packs the same powerful technology that our Bulb Eater users rave about. This product makes it easier for businesses to be environmentally conscious while saving time, money and space!

The Bulb Eater 3L has many of the features of the award-winning Bulb Eater® 3, but is offered at a reduced cost and is the perfect solution for those wanting to save money while reducing labor and recycling costs.

How does nationwide bulk waste pickup work to increase efficiency at my facility?

Our bulk pickup services provide a cost-effective solution for facilities that recycle a large amount of universal waste. Our program takes care of waste including fluorescent lamps (crushed or not), ballasts, batteries, and electronic waste. And our flexible scheduling allows us to coordinate a pickup date that works best for you.

Your packaged waste is picked up and delivered to one of our certified recycling partners. The waste is then recycled, and you’ll receive a Certificate of Recycling to confirm proper handling and processing. Our online recycling reports allow anyone who has utilized bulk pickup recycling services to receive detailed information about their facility’s recycling progress. Each report details specifically what types of waste were recycled, the amount recycled, and the date processed. These reports are available online 24/7 and are perfect for facility management reviews, “green” marketing initiatives, and more.

 

Schedule your final bulk pickup of 2017 online or by phone at (800) 909-9709.

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
