It's Not Too Late to Go Green!

Friday, May 10, 2013
April has been called the cruellest month, but here at Air Cycle we like to think of it as the greenest month! Both Arbor Day (last Friday in April) and Earth Day (April 22) occur in April, resulting in a flurry of green activity.

But even if you missed these occasions, it's not too late to take your next step toward a greener future! It could be starting a waste recycling program, switching to an eco-friendly cleaning and sanitizing solution, or scheduling a green audit of your facility. Whatever that next step is, it's never too late to go a little greener!

Free Webinar: New OSHA Hazard Communication Standard

Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Last year, the US Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) enacted a new Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). According to OSHA, the update to the HCS "provides a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets." The update brings the HCS from a "right to know" into a "right to understand" paradigm and is estimated to affect 40 million US workers.

The initial compliance deadline for training workers on the revised HCS rule is in December of 2013. Do you have all the knowledge you need about the new rule and its implementation?

If not, join us tomorrow, April 10, at 2:00 pm CST for a free Air Cycle-sponsored webinar with Denese A. Deeds, CIH, who is co-founder and senior consultant at Industrial Health and Safety Consultants, Inc. Denese will bring you up to speed on the revised HCS so you can be confident you're ready for December. Click here to learn more and register »

Happy Holidays from Air Cycle!

Thursday, December 20, 2012
On behalf of myself and the Air Cycle team, I’d like to extend our warmest holiday greetings and wish you a very happy New Year! We greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with you toward a sustainable world by keeping hazardous wastes out of our environment.

Around the office at Air Cycle, we've been celebrating the season with decorations, a drive for our local food pantry, and a toy drive.

The holiday season can also be a great time to clear out the backlog of spent fluorescent lamps or other wastes that have accumulated over the year. Recycling now can simplify planning for 2013 and minimize the safety risks of storing waste.

Give us a call at 800-909-9709 or email info@lamprecycling.com if you would like more information or a custom quote. Have a wonderful holiday!
