Dialight partners with Veolia to offer HID lamp, ballast recycling

Dialight announced that it has partnered with Veolia Environmental Services to offer high-intensity discharge (HID) and street light fixture and lamp recycling for commercial facilities and municipalities that make the switch to Dialight’s more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly LED lighting solutions.

As business and municipalities change out traditional fixtures in buildings, warehouses, streetlights and parking lots to take advantage of the cost and energy savings offered by LED technology, the discarded fixtures and lamps must be recycled or disposed of properly. Most contain hazardous materials – mercury – that not only make them an environmental liability, but also expose the company or municipality to the risk of penalty for improper handling and disposal.

Veolia’s processing system ensures that customers who change out fixtures will be able to minimize cost and maximize efficiency.
