How you can recycle fluorescent light bulbs and fixtures

At the Annual Forum of the Association of New Jersey Recyclers (ANJR) back in October, we got to meet with representatives of a number of businesses that have established interesting niche markets in the recycling sector.

One of them was Joe Puro who runs National Bulb Recycling. His New Jersey-based company, which offers its services up and down the east coast, enables businesses, schools and institutions to avoid the illegal disposal of their worn out fluorescent light bulbs, fixtures and other products containing mercury by recycling them.



While this video is not an endorsement of  National Bulb Recycling (we've never used their services), we were interested to learn how Joe's company processes electronic products to capture their component materials for productive new uses. You might find it interesting, too.

[Disclosure: ANJR is a client of our sister company, Brill Public Affairs]
