The 2012 Lighting Regulations Agenda

Wednesday, February 22, 2012
For facility managers, the new year brings a new agenda for lighting regulations.

Relamping is a key topic with the elimination of most T12 fluorescent lamps and some incandescent lamps from U.S. manufacture or import, and the shortening timeframe for projects to qualify for an EPAct tax deduction.

This article from FacilitiesNet covers the best ways to plan for these issues going forward in 2012.

A relamping project can greatly increase the energy-efficiency of a facility lighting system, but due to their mercury content, all of the old fluorescent bulbs need to be recycled. EasyPak™ mail-in containers make the job simple for small facilities, while a large facility may need a large-quantity lamp recycling solution like the Bulb Eater® lamp crusher or a Bulk Pickup.

Successful Facility Recycling: A Three-Step Approach

A recycling program can do a lot for a facility, like bolster the company's "green" image, improve facility safety, and ensure compliance with recycling regulations to minimize the risk of fines.

This article from FacilitiesNet breaks down the implementation of a successful recycling program into three steps: establishing program objectives, conducting a waste audit, and viewing waste as commodity instead of garbage.

A key waste to address with any recycling program is spent fluorescent lamps. All fluorescent lamps contain mercury, and need to be recycled to prevent harm to the environment. Recycling regulations also require lamps to be recycled in many states. EasyPak™ prepaid, mail-in containers make recycling simple and fast. Learn how » EasyPak™ recycling containers
