Waste Recycling Solutions from Pineapple Hospitality and Air Cycle

Hotel News Resource

Pineapple partners with Air Cycle to provide a comprehensive and simple recycling solution for energy-saving compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and other electronic waste.

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) have been getting some bad press lately. While everyone agrees that the funny-shaped, long-lasting light bulbs are fantastic energy and money savers, there is a concern about the trace amounts of mercury used in the lamps ending up in landfills.

Mercury is highly toxic to the human nervous system and particularly poisonous to the kidneys. When lamps are sent to landfills, or especially when incineration is used as a disposal method, mercury vapors are released that can travel more than 200 miles.

But CFLs don't have to be a Catch 22 for your lodging operations.

Pineapple Hospitality, the premier distributor of green products and marketing programs to the hospitality industry, is partnering with Air Cycle to provide an easy, efficient way to recycle your used mercury-containing lamps, batteries, ballasts and/or thermostats.
