Together we can be part of the solution!
FTS Lighting Services is a green lighting company. Much of today’s lighting and electronic equipments contain hazardous materials such as mercury, lead or PCBs. Recent federal mandates have been implemented requiring the recycling of environmentally hazardous equipment. Not following these mandates not only destroys the Earth we live in, but it may 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.
Universal and Hazardous Waste
Everyone uses batteries, flourescent lights, and small electronics- most people don’t think anything of tossing them in the trash. 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. These products must be separated from the regular trash and collected for safe disposal. 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.
