Recycle your old lights - why would we care?

The most important long term global issue the world community faces today is sustaining our growth and development in an environmentally responsible manner.  We are a company committed to developing lighting solutions that accommodate your needs and reduce your costs with innovative products.  When we replace your lights we want to help you meet the moral, social, environmental, and regulatory obligations through value-added services that protect people and the environment.

Our Partner - Why we chose Veolia?

When you replace your lights, the old lights are considered eWaste.  We used the following criteria to select Veolia as our eWaste partner:

  • Qualified to handle your business
  • National Footprint
  • Simplicity / Service Excellence / Features
  • Safety
  • EPA Reporting keeps you in compliance
