An integrated approach to solutions for Universal Waste Generators

Universal waste refers to the hazardous waste created when a variety of commonly used products are discarded including batteries, lightbulbs, and items that contain mercury such as fluorescent lights. Before they are thrown out, we rely on these products for our productivity, comfort, security, and convenience. When these products are no longer useful, it's imperative that they be handled in a responsible way that is legally compliant and reduces their potential environmental impact. Clean Earth serves as a critical part in the lifecycle of these products.

Not only do we ensure the safe destruction and disposal of dangerous chemicals that could otherwise end up in a landfill, but we also reduce the total amount of waste by processing the resulting components such as plastics and metals for recycling.
