Waste Management, Inc. announced that it has acquired the LampTracker® business from shareholders of Mercury Waste Solutions, LLC.

This business, which will be operated through Waste Management’s WM LampTracker subsidiary, will provide collection and safe recycling of fluorescent bulbs using integrated on-line tracking capability. WM Lamp-Tracker also offers this service for the recycling of batteries, electronics and other wastes commonly referred to as universal wastes.

WM LampTracker allows com- mercial and industrial customers to recycle fluorescent bulbs, which contain mercury.

WM LampTracker offers the exclusive VaporLok foil bag that has been specially engineered and custom-manufactured to safely contain residual mercury vapors during the storage and transportation of fluorescent bulbs.

In addition, the tracking system offers on-line convenience and integrates with major shippers’ tracking systems.
