What Regency recycles
From traditional lamps,
- Tritium exit signs
Recently, we partnered with a large property management customer to retrofit their linear fluorescent tubes to LED. A large part of the project was not just about reducing their energy consumption, but it was also about responsibly disposing of the older product. As part of our product offering, we provided the customer the ability to recycle their fluorescent tubes. That's a huge statement by the customer –– showing their value for environmental responsibility.
As a leader in their industry, they are communicating that they care about our environment. Recycling offers a way for the customer to show they care about their community.
Each customer has a responsibility to recycle other products beyond the lamps that contain mercury. They are able to recycle ballasts, batteries and even the traditional incandescent lighting so that those components can be used for other productive purposes.
Lighting and electronic recycling programs
Leave your worries at the door. Our programs are designed to assure compliance with both federal and state regulations. We want to make your experience with recycling products hassle-free. Regency facilitates all transportation, packaging, processing, and certificates of recycling services.
We can provide this service through the following methods:
Our ready-to-use packaging for recycling storage and shipment is perfect for small quantities of fluorescent lamps, batteries, ballasts, and thermostats containing mercury.
This allows those customers who aren’t undergoing a large program to be able to efficiently recycle in a turnkey fashion. There are various sizes that can be purchased to fit the customer’s needs. Each “box” comes with a liner to seal the product being recycled and a shipping label to ship the package to the recycling company when they have filled it up. Once the product has been recycled, a certificate will be sent to the customer for them to keep on file as proof that their product was recycled.
Bulk recycling is handled through a national partner. Most clients pair this service with routine maintenance or larger re-lamp, retrofit, or renovation projects.
This is geared more toward those larger projects where a customer has more than they can fit in the Recycle Pak program. The cost of the recycling is based on linear foot for linear fluorescent lamps or weight when it comes to the HIDs, CFLs or ballasts. Our customer service agents are trained to partner with each customer and help them determine the program that would fit them best for their specific purposes, also
Regency Truck Pick-Up:
Regency will deliver appropriate recycling containers and pick up recycling for local properties within a set radius of a Regency warehouse location.
Ultimately, recycling lamps, ballasts, batteries, tritium exit signs, and traditional lighting allows our customer base to be a solid and responsible community partner, protecting precious environmental resources.
What is the most common lighting recycling program option?
The method of recycling you'll choose really depends on the needs of the customer. The simplest and most common program is our Recycle Pak program. It's easy to use, cost-effective, and available for the smaller businesses that have your standard everyday needs.
We can use Regency Truck Pickups when a customer has a larger quantity to recycle and is close to one of our seven U.S. distribution centers.
However, if the items needed to be picked up are in the several
For example, is a lift gate needed? Are the lamps palletized and shrink wrapped? Can an 18-wheel
