Universal Waste Recycling

Green Century promotes the recycling of Universal waste through its recycling services. We collect and process batteries, lamps, and ballasts. Through our Universal waste program, residents and businesses are able to recycle their lights/lamps and batteries, of all chemistries, as well as ballasts.

We can provide the boxes for storage and transport as well as help with any concerns with storage, labeling and transporting.
