Mercury Devices & Spill Kit Recycling Containers
Disposing items containing hazardous materials -- such as mercury -- is no easy task. If you've completed a retrofit of a traditional fluorescent lighting system, you know this to be true. And if you're planning one for the first time, you may be confused by all the rules and regulations to ensure you're throwing them away properly.
This is where Veolia Environmental Services comes in. In an effort to take away the confusion and make this process as easy -- and environmentally friendly -- as possible, Veolia had developed a recycling program for handling mercury containing waste products, including fluorescent and HID lamps, ballasts, electrical devices, debris and contaminated soil, and other items. The company operates four recycling facilities in the United States, and uses retort ovens and distillation equipment that is able to salvage 99% mercury from the disposed products, which is then made available for resale.
Veolia works with businesses to set up a recycling program that is tailored to their needs. Veolia provides the proper containers and shipping labels for the safe and legal transport of mercury-containing items, and even coordinates pick-up once the containers are filled, sealed and ready to go.
