Together We Can Be Part of the Solution!

FTS Lighting, Recycling, and Energy Solutions is a green lighting company. Much of today’s lighting and electronic equipment contain hazardous materials such as mercury, lead or PCBs, and are federally mandated to be recycled and disposed of properly. Not following these mandates not only destroys the Earth we live in, but can lead to highly expensive fines.  We are proud to offer many ways in which you can recycle all of your old lamps, ballasts, batteries, e-waste, and even medical and dental waste responsibly.

Why Recycle?

Everyone uses batteries, fluorescent lights, and small electronics, but most don't know that these products must be separated from the regular trash and collected for safe disposal. In 2000, the Department of Toxic Substances Control adopted new regulations governing “universal waste:” common household items that are deemed hazardous to people and the environment. If released into the environment, improper disposal of universal wastes can lead to groundwater contamination from chemicals like mercury, lead, acid, zinc, cadmium, or other corrosive and flammable toxins. Recycling not only protects the earth, but also turns materials that would otherwise become garbage into valuable resources.

Federal Regulations

Many lamps are considered hazardous because of mercury content (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)). As a result, it is illegal to dispose of light bulbs or lamps as a solid waste in the dumpster. Under the Superfund law, consumers assume “cradle to grave” responsibility—liability exists as long as waste remains. As such, fines for improper disposal can reach up to $32,000 per occurrence.
