Why Recycling Universal Waste Is Important.
At NLR, our first and foremost concern is the environment. Universal Waste is regulated to protect the environment, and to us it’s important to recycle because:
- Environmental- universal wastes contain a number of harmful bioaccumulates including, mercury, lead, copper, and cadmium and the government at state and federal levels want to keep these compounds out of our environment, water supply, and human body.
- Sustainability- There are a limited number of ways to safely dispose of waste and a decreasing amount of space to do so. Many of these universal wastes can be recycled back to basic components that can be reused in other manufacturing and construction.
- Ethical- To leave the land a little greener for those who come after us and keep certain wastes here in the U.S. where they cannot be a part of exploitative practices such as materials scavenging or child labor in the third world.
- Financial- These wastes are regulated by multiple levels of government. You do not want to face fines at the state and federal level.
