Light Bulbs

Recycling used fluorescent lamps is a tricky business. They’re bulky, fragile, contain hazardous mercury and take over entire storage areas, closets and basements. Thankfully, Total Reclaim’s sister company, EcoLights Northwest, offers a number of convenient & cost-effective, options to recycle fluorescent lamps, ballasts and mercury-bearing devices, while simultaneously protecting your employees, your business and our environment:

  1. EcoLights Recycling Kits—safe, convenient, pre-paid boxes for your old fluorescent lamps, CFLs and other devices. Just fill the box and ship them to EcoLights for recycling.
  2. Fiber Drums and other storage containers—we deliver empty packaging to your site, you fill them up, we take them away.
  3. Drop-off—feel free to bring your used fluorescent lights to any of our facilities or to a LightRecycle collection site.
  4. Whole Fixture Recycling—save even more time and money on your projectby simply recycling the entire light fixture instead of just the lamps.

For more information about how to easily and conveniently recycle your fluorescent lamps, visit the EcoLights or call 206-343-1247.


Not sure what to do with your heaps of dead batteries? Total Reclaim can recycle batteries of all shapes, sizes, chemistries and volumes. We have recycled millions of batteries for thousands of companies over the years. We know the laws, we know the process and, most importantly, we know how to reduce your liability and administrative costs. Here’s what we do:

  1. Assess your recycling requirements based on the types and quantities of batteries at your site.
  2. Establish a collection and recycling program.
  3. Educate your staff on proper separation, safe packaging and disposal while providing guidelines to ensure that battery shipments are delivered safely.

Sooner or later, every appliance reaches the end of the line. The question is what happens on the other side of that line? The answer is pretty simple. Total Reclaim offers tried and tested environmentally responsible recycling solutions for appliances large and small: refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, stoves, even restaurant and commercial equipment. We’ve recycled them by the thousands. Here’s how we make it work for you:

  1. Drop off your appliance or arrange for pick-up with Total Reclaim.
  2. We break down the appliances at our Kent recycling facility, eliminating waste that would otherwise enter landfills.
  3. The materials are separated and shipped off for further refinement, ultimately becoming feedstock in the manufacturing of new products.

  • Faulty electronic toothbrushes and shavers

  • Footwear that was not manufactured to specification
  • Warranty returns or manufacturer recalls
