Ballast Recycling

Ballast are mostly found in lightbulb fixtures across campus. UK Recycling can provide a 55 gallon metal drum for renovation and construction projects. If ballasts are items you come across in your day-to-day work, UK Recycling can place a container in a centralized location for long-term use

The 55 gallon drums, provided by UK Recycling, can be placed for one year or until full. After a year, UK Recycling will remove the container and replace with a new container to stay in compliance with Universal Waste Regulations. Please contact UK Recycling when the container is ¾ full to prevent the container from becoming too heavy.
