Commercial Lighting: Lamp Recyclers

recyclers

NEMA maintains this list of companies in the United States and Canada that claim to recycle spent mercury-containing lamps or handle lamps so as to ensure they end up at a recycling facility. In the U.S., recycling companies must meet the definition of a “Destination Facility” and operate under a state permit or RCRA-equivalent authority to perform lamp recycling (per RCRA 40 CFR §273.6). Handlers are either generators or third party brokers that collect lamps and get them to recyclers.

INCLUSION ON THESE LISTS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN ENDORSEMENT OR RECOMMENDATION BY NEMA OF THE COMPANIES OR THEIR TECHNOLOGIES. NEMA RESERVES THE RIGHT IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION TO EXCLUDE COMPANIES FROM THIS LISTING. PERSONS CONTACTING THE LISTED COMPANIES SHOULD MAKE THEIR OWN INVESTIGATIONS AND DETERMINATIONS ABOUT THE COSTS AND APPROPRIATENESS OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE LISTED COMPANIES.

The Association of Lighting and Mercury Recyclers (ALMR) is a national organization that represents lamp recyclers, Universal Waste Handlers, mercury and rare earth element reclamation companies, and related equipment manufacturers. ALMR member companies network with each other so that lamps can be collected and recycled from anywhere in the country. Additional information about lamp recycling can be found at www.almr.org . The International Association of Lighting Maintenance Companies (NALMCO, www.nalmco.org) represents lighting maintenance companies in the US, which may provide spent lamp management recycling services as part of their lighting maintenance operations.
