WasteSecure partners with Republic to recycle lamps

Republic Services, Inc. announced that it is providing its commercial customers with an environmentally safe process for disposing of fluorescent lamps. Through an alliance with WasteSecure, Republic provides a convenient, cost-effective solution to help customers manage their recycling activity.

Republic’s commercial and industrial customers who sign up will participate in a simple, turnkey, mail-back program for recycling fluorescent lamps. An all-inclusive price covers recycling containers, shipping by FedEX, processing, and complete online tracking and reports. Auto-reorder is available to make sure customers always have a supply of recycling boxes for their fluorescent lamps.

Republic launched the program for its large national industrial and commercial customers. Once the initial roll-out of the program is complete, the Company anticipates offering it to all of its industrial and commercial customers in 2011. Republic selected WasteSecure as a partner due to its large geographic footprint and its industry-leading practices.
