At EYE Applied Optix, we’re all about making lights that are eco-friendly. We take the environment into consideration for every step of our lamps’ lives, from fabrication to eventual disposal.
Some types of lamps contain hazardous materials which require specific disposal methods. EYE Applied Optix environmentally-friendly lamps are Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-compliant as non-hazardous waste. They are completely lead-free and contain less mercury than standard High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps.
State and federal laws govern safe disposal for lamps. Check out LampRecycle.org for information on how to recycle your light bulbs.
All of our lamp and system packaging has been made with a mixture of recycled materials and can be disposed of in the proper cardboard recycling locations.
LAMPS CONTAIN MERCURY
All HID lamps have some mercury. Manage in accord with disposal laws. For the latest information on recycling, please go to www.lamprecycle.org.
EYE Applied Optix Recycling Facts
EYE Applied Optix makes a concerted effort to reduce, reuse and recycle as much material as possible in the production process and for daily business. EYE Lighting’s recycling project is not only to cut down on waste headed to landfills but to cut costs associated with hauling trash as well.
Industrial recycling is an essential component of our manufacturing process. At our production facility in Ohio, we routinely recycle thousands upon thousands of pounds of manufacturing waste material and office materials.
The day-to-day operations of an HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamp manufacturer generate a lot of waste, but we’re committed to recycling everything possible.
We recycle many materials, including:
- Arc Tubes: Metal Halide arc tube quartz, HPS arc tube PCA
- Wire: nickel, tungsten, niobium, molybdenum
- Metal components: Nickel-plated, stainless steel, zirconium aluminum-plated
- Paper: office paper, newspaper, magazines, glossy stock, cardboard
- Plastic: plastic trays, shrink wrap, acrylic and polyethylene bottles
