TerraCycle Regulated Waste, LLC
Our Mission is to provide innovative recycling solutions that benefit our clients, contribute to environmental improvement, and create new opportunities for our team.
Our History begins in 1978 in the Chicago metropolitan area under the name AirCycle. As the lighting industry evolved, AirCycle identified the need for make packaging spent fluorescent lamps easy and efficient. As legislation was passed to reduce pollution from irresponsible lamp disposal, we designed a machine to meet the lamp recycling needs of facilities worldwide. On March 15, 1999, the Model 55 VRS Bulb Eater® was introduced at the National Plant Engineering Trade Show, at which the Bulb Eater® was named one of the 17 "Show Stoppers" out of over 700 exhibitors!
Since then, we focused our energies on developing a national network of recycling facilities to service our growing customer base. That network has expanded over the years and currently provides logistics and recycling services for crushed and/or intact lamps, batteries, ballasts, and electronic waste to thousands of facilities nationwide.
As a TerraCycle® Company, we continue to develop sustainable and technology driven solutions. We believe that people want innovative tools and services that are easy to use, improve results, save money, and are environmentally protective. TerraCycle is committed to developing those tools and services in order to help people, protect our environment, and create opportunity for our team and partners.
From fluorescent lamp, ballast, battery, and e-waste recycling to recycling Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and aerosols, our products and services are designed to enable you to implement a comprehensive environmental program for your facility.
