Universal Waste Management

Nearly every business, school, hospital, municipality and person in the United States deals with Universal Waste. Have you ever replaced a 4’ fluorescent light bulb? Replace an old, bulky CRT monitor for a sleek flat screen? What did you do with the old ones? Universal Wastes are all around us; fluorescent light bulbs, batteries and electronic waste are some of the most common. They need to be managed correctly, both to limit exposure risks to heavy metals and to reclaim raw materials that are used to manufacture new items.
