CFL recycling represents the core service ThinkGreen
To safely store and recycle used CFLs and batteries, customers can order online and receive prepaid-postage kits delivered to their door. Think Green® From Home CFL recycling kits incorporate Mercury VaporLokTM technology, which is designed to reduce the risk of airborne exposure and environmental contamination from lamps broken during storage and shipping.
The kits are suitable for both the storage and transport of discarded bulbs or batteries and are approved for shipping by the United States Postal Service. Consumers can ship the boxes directly from their home or at any one of the over 34,000 postal offices across the country.
“Waste Management is committed to providing solutions to help customers responsibly handle their household universal waste,” said Jim VanWoert, WM New York market area manager. “New Yorkers are becoming increasingly aware of the 2012 deadline for the use of CFLs and the need to properly dispose of CFLs, batteries and other electronic waste. The Think Green® From Home program makes recycling this waste as safe and convenient as possible.”
Waste Management is the nation’s largest recycler and is focused on helping consumers increase recycling and reduce materials in the waste stream. Earlier this year, the company held neighborhood recycling events in Brooklyn and the Bronx to recover used cell phones, TVs, computers and other home electronics.
