Recycling

We receive material 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday Through Friday

Realizing the need for recycling lamps, ballasts, and electronics, P.E.T.E.S. researched the disposal and recycling industry to find the most economical and safe means to handle these potentially dangerous items.  Since 1998, we have been licensed by the state of Montana, in partnership with EcoLights Northwest and Total Reclaim, Inc as the registered representative in the Western Montana Area.  This certification qualifies us to recycle lamps, ballasts, computers, monitors, televisions and other electronic equipment in a fully improved manner meeting all EPA requirements.

It is very important to all of us at P.E.T.E.S. that this product does not end up in a landfill.  That is why we offer the service to the general public.  So how much of a difference did we make in 2009?  The numbers were a little staggering frankly, not including tv’s and Computer monitors, Missoula recycled 10 tons of electronic e-waste in 2009.  In addition, in 2009, Missoula recycled almost 700 monitors, 200 TV’s, and get this, 71496 ft of lamps, which is around 13.5 miles.  Great job Missoula, we look forward to serving this need for years to come and appreciate all the support.  Every little bit helps.
