Costs Related to Recycling Fluorescent Tubes

Recycling logo made from dollar bills

Congratulations! You have unexpected expenses.

Due to government regulations on fluorescent lamps you are now expected to not only properly recycle your used, broken or unwanted fluorescent tubes but also replace your light fixtures to accommodate an LED equivalent.

According to the EPA you should allow for recycling costs in your annual budget:

  • Tubes – 4¢ to 12¢ per linear foot
  • High Intensity Discharges – $1.50 – $2.00
  • Compact Fluorescent Lamps – 50¢ – $1.00

Think about that. Instead of just switching from one light type to another like you do at home (incandescent to CFL or LED) you have to replace the ballasts in all of your fluorescent light fixtures in order to accommodate the new T8 LED tube.

How many fluorescent light fixtures do you have in your office, shop, garage, college building, or grocery store?

Hundreds of fixtures? Thousands? And each fixture has how many lights in it?

We can all agree that LED lights are more energy-efficient but at what cost? You want to save the environment from the damage of mercury in fluorescent tube lighting but now you have to hire an electrician to help you change all of your fixtures?

Not any more.

With our exclusive, UL-approved T8 lamp you can simply remove your old fluorescent tubes and replace them with ours. That’s it!
