Easy to Use Recycling Kits

Our mail-back recycling kit services are easy and cost-effective. If you are a residential customer and have less than 40 bulbs, contact your local city hall and ask if your city has drop off locations for its residents. 

How Does The Mail Back Recycling Kit program work:

1.  Our pre-paid recycling program is for lamps/bulbs, exit signs, ballasts, batteries, electronics and thermostats. Each kits price includes a container, all shipping costs to the recycling center, recycling costs and a certificate of recycling. You should receive your container(s) in 3-8 business days or less once ordered.  You have one year to return them to us. On the website businesses can choose which containers will best serve their needs. Containers are available for fluorescent lamps, CFLs, ballasts, batteries, electronics, and thermostats.

2. Once the containers have been received a business can fill them up at their own pace. Each container is pre-printed with simple step-by-step instructions in both English and Spanish.

3. When a container is filled and sealed, the business can call the FedEx phone number that comes on each box to schedule a pre-paid pickup from their location. The filled container will be delivered for recycling to one of BulbCycle’s permitted facilities located within the United States.

If you would like to pay buy invoice with net payment terms and purchase orders please ask our representatives for our vendor program forms. Learn more about our services here.
