How it works

The Zero Waste Box program allows you to recycle almost any type of waste. Simply follows the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet.

What happens to your recyclables

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into glass and metal. The glass and metal are then reintroduced to other glass and metal production processes.

Accepted waste

Please send us your used incandescent or halogen lightbulbs. A simple test to make sure you're light qualifies is shaking it and listening for the metal filament that breaks when a light burns out.

Please do NOT...

include any of the following bulb types: HID, CFL, Fluorescent, LED, any other non-incandescent bulb.
