EasyPak Distributors WANTED!

Any electrical distributor who sells energy-efficient lighting for buildings can assist facility managers with their lamp recycling. Electrical distributors are uniquely positioned to offer their customers a convenient one-stop shopping arrangement for lamp purchasing and spent lamp management. Our EasyPak™ Recycling Program creates an opportunity for distributors to make a profit by offering recycling services to their customers. The program can also be offered as a value-added service for better customer relations.

"Offering a recycling option to customers can be a good 'value-add' service for distributors," TED Magazine, July 2002. Greg Smith of Granite City Electric further adds that "the real benefit of our recycling program is receiving orders for lamps that we wouldn't have if we didn't recycle."

This opportunity is not limited to electrical distributors only. Any company already selling to facilities management personnel will benefit from offering the EasyPak program to their clients.

Maine is the first state to require manufacturers to provide a financial incentive to recycle commercial and residential building thermostats that contain mercury and require everyone to recycle the devices.

Mercury Spotlight

State gives warning about mercury in fish

As a brilliant sun smiled on the Carolina Beach City Marina on Thursday evening, Caleb Batson scowled while stretching a tarp atop his 40-foot cruiser.

He had just been told North Carolina issued mercury warnings for 22 species of fish.

"They don't warn you about eating beef or chicken with steroids that can't even stand up when they grow them, but they'll warn you about something wild caught that lives on its own and grows at a normal rate," Batson said, reflecting views of other charter captains whose living comes from the lure of the sea.
