How we do our part ….
How do you do your part to leave a minimal footprint behind? At PSC we take pride in the fact that we recycle every part possible of both signs that we service as well as signs that we are asked to take down for customers.
Servicing signs usually means replacing bulbs, a lot of bulbs. We recycle all of the fluorescent and neon bulbs, that contain mercury, which is a big environmental no-no. They are taken to an authorized recycling facility that follows state and federal regulations.
We also have too many ballasts and transformers than we can count. They contain many metal components, including copper which is recycled at a separate recycling facility.
Finally, of course we recycle all of the metal signs, brackets and posts – they go straight to the recycling center as scrap metal.
All this recycling makes for a few too many piles at our location, but we are proud that we can say we are doing our part to help reduce, reuse and recycle.
