End of the School Year, Beginning of School Maintenance

Tuesday, May 31, 2016
While some of us celebrate the end of the school year, it’s just the beginning of an often hectic time of year for many long term school maintenance programs, just waiting for the time that classrooms aren’t filled with students. It’s time to deal with major maintenance programs. If that means lighting, hardware and network infrastructure upgrades, your work has just begun, and you have only two months to complete the work! Air Cycle takes the hassle out of your lighting and electronic waste recycling, which allows you to concentrate on your project work.

When your project comes to an end, let us help you maintain your recycling program with our easy to use EasyPak Recycling Containers. Sustainability tracking and recycling metrics are all part of documenting and ensuring compliance, with applicable State and Federal laws. Make it easy to recycle by ordering new recycling containers for the upcoming fall rush.

And once your project is complete, don’t let spent lamps, batteries, ballasts, and electronics clutter basements and storage closets at your school. We provide a simple solution to stay in compliance with state and federal recycling regulations with a single cost-effective solution. Here’s how EasyPak Recycling can make a difference in your facility.

  • Select Containers: choose from lamp, ballast, battery, electronics and thermostat recycling containers. Once you have your containers selected, complete the checkout process to start a Sustainable Program.
  • Fill With Waste: Fill containers with your fluorescent lamp, battery, ballast, electronic, or thermostat waste.  The containers you use for storage are UN Certified for safe transport, and come with full instructions.
  • Return and Repeat: Each container comes with a UPS pre-paid shipping label. Follow instructions printed on the container and call to schedule a pickup. As soon as we receive your EasyPak™ container for recycling, we'll ship you a replacement container automatically.

Simple Solutions to Complex Recycling Regulations

Monday, May 16, 2016
Tackling the complex problem of universal waste recycling for large organizations can be a daunting task, even with staff specifically trained to deal with such issues. Service organizations such as hotels, colleges, and hospitals don’t generate hazardous materials as a normal course and all too often, these businesses may not be aware of state, local, and federal environmentalregulations as traditional  manufacturers.

Common workplace waste, such as spent batteries, fluorescent bulbs, ballasts and electronics are regulated in each state and are generated in such volumes that they cannot be landfilled legally. One fine can easily erode the savings incurred through illegally landfilling regulated waste.

As green practices become more commonplace, consumers increasingly factor environmentally sustainable practices into their purchase decisions. According to a survey by FORBES MAGAZINE, 62 percent of travelers either always or often consider the environment when choosing a hotel, transportation, or restaurant. By being proactive and responsible, your service company can avoid the potential for significant negative public relations and turn it into core business ethic.

Service organizations can easily put a universal waste recycling program in place for lamps, batteries, ballasts,  and electronics by using Air Cycle’s EasyPak program. For one flat rate, an EasyPak container is shipped to you and the pre-paid service provides you everything you need to put a recycling program in place. The service includes easy to assemble and use storage containers, that when full are sealed and sent for recycling using the UPS pre-paid address label that comes with each container.  Recycling has never been easier.

Recycle a full container and a replacement will automatically be reordered and sent to you. Track your progress and set goals with live, visual reporting of the waste recycled at your facility. You’ll receive official, online Certificates of Recycling for download in your inbox to stay in compliance and avoid costly fines.
