March 28, 2013 – Take Back the Light (TBTL)—a program of the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO)—congratulates Nedco for recycling over 1 million lamps through TBTL.

“It is very gratifying when our business activities support such important aspects of our every day existence. Our staff work very hard for our customers and can confidently tell their children that they make a meaningful contribution to their future and to the well-being of the planet,” said Bob Arbuckle, director of Energy Services, Nedco, adding, “Responsible sustainability will continue to have increasing importance and weigh heavier in business decisions in the future.”

Recycling over a million lamps means that Nedco’s efforts have kept over 36.4 kg of mercury from entering the environment, as well as 349,450 kg of glass, 4363 kg of metals and 5478 kg of phosphor.

“We congratulate Nedco for achieving this impressive milestone. By demonstrating such leadership, they have not only made a meaningful impact towards protecting our health and the environment, but they have also helped their customers operate more sustainably,” said Sarah Mills, program manager for Take Back the Light.
