An Easy Way to Reduce Waste!

Graybar offers its customers, in conjunction with Veolia ES Technical Solutions, environmentally safe and cost-effective disposal of a wide variety of products as required by local, state and federal regulations. As you face regulations from the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), EPA Universal Waste Rule, the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), state and local regulations as well as your company directives, Graybar can work with Veolia to help you comply and document. We coordinate the packaging, shipping and freight costs for the disposal of these items. In addition, we can provide MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) and tracking of this material once it has left your facility.

Examples of products that can be safely recycled with documentation are:
  • Lamps and ballasts
  • Wire and cable
  • Batteries
    Transformers (PCB and non-PCB)
  • Capacitors
  • Circuit breakers
  • Switchgear
  • Arrestors and reclosers
  • Electronic components

Materials are collected in a variety of containers based on your need. We have prepaid RecyclePaks that are prepaid mailing containers for lamps and can also provide buckets, drums and cubic-yard containers. Once the materials are recycled at the Veolia permitted, licensed and audited facility, you will receive the resulting documentation to confirm disposal of your materials.
